Mark Khaisman using nothing more than brown parcel tape

Mark Khaisman  using nothing more than brown parcel tape recreates amazing images from films and aother cultural backgrounds. The result is a impressive visual language and very creative technique.  

Artist Statement :
"I work on the light easel, applying translucent brown packing tape on clear Plexiglas panels, the layers built up to create degrees of opacity. My main motivation is my love for classics. The images are archetypes derived from the cultural heritage: art, architecture, movies. I am trying to be faithful to the source, but in the process of interpretation all kinds of things happen. The reason is submerged in the shadows, the purpose is absorbed by the light, the cultural icon has become the personal experience."
