ABOUT: A woman in a red gown exits the classic theater in the background, looking as if her "Night Out" has come to an end. But is she satisfied with the evening or disappointed? Artist Max Zorn likes to introduce his audience to a scene but rely on their imagination to decide where the story goes and how it ends. His motifs remind many of a film noir set between lines of disillusion and nostalgia. The vintage cars and marquee bulbs illuminate this classic night setting of a romantic city night.
MEDIUM: 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.
PROTECTION: 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 light frame and CoA included.
