MAX ZORN – RED
31 January – 1 March 2015
Opening Reception 31 January 2015, 17:00
With a surgeon’s scalpel for a brush, Max Zorn is a ‘tape artist’ who uses common brown packing tape as his medium. Zorn shapes layers upon layers of tape onto acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind, reveal a contrast and warmth that has captured the art world.
Based in Amsterdam, Max Zorn emerged as an urban artist in 2011 when he began applying his tape art to street lamps. Using the night as his setting, Zorn has gone on to adorn the street lamps of London, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin and beyond.
Max Zorn’s iconic style ranges from shimmering skyscrapers and golden age Americana to grandiose European charm set between lines of decadence and disillusion.
The Original Dampkring Gallery is proud to present Max Zorn RED. RED reveals a new period of exploration in Zorn’s work, introducing dramatic strokes of red and other colours to his tape palette to punctuate his compositions and heighten the intensity of depicted scenes.
