Pic of the Day: Tape Noir


Mixed media artist Mark Khaisman layers translucent packing tape on Plexiglas panels to create images that have the shadow and depth of large scale paintings. “My Tape Art is a conversation with light,” he explains. “I started it like a traditional stained glass artist, but with tape I found I could continue my conversation with light, but in a more expedient manner.” Each piece takes Khaisman about a week to complete; he draws from his training as an architect to create a plan, but then allows the tape to guide his course.
