This is a classic Max Zorn artwork — a mysterious beauty in red facing the bold Americana setting overlooking the Empire State Building. The juxtaposition between a peaceful subject playfully tousling her hair and the bustling Big Apple creating the illuminating charge seen in the distant building lights is what gives this artwork a sense of wondrous ease. The artist chose red for the gown to enhance the overall warmth of the composition.
This artwork is made from only layers of sepia-toned and colored packing tape on top of acrylic glass. The tape is hand cut by the artist, with no photo reference and no pre-sketch. The LED light behind the sheet of acrylic glass illuminates the different layers, creating different tones.
All Max Zorn tape artworks are sealed air tight by a sealant and a permanent opaque back sheet behind it to prevent exposure to dust, dryness and humidity. LED lights are low-voltage to avoid any heat, and every artwork has a UV protected acrylic glass in the front. LED frame and CoA included.
