ABOUT: "The Restless Pursuit" was part of a series that premiered Max Zorn's use of colored packing tape for a more pop art edge in subjects, like this sparkling emerald vintage car and dozing couple, within a setting of a deco beach towns like Miami Beach. While keeping brown sepia-tones a dominant palate to set his works in a nostalgic time, Zorn creates a seaside mood romantic and dazzling. Zorn's theme for this show had strong feeling of a dreamy Americana with shimmering details.
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 frame and CoA included.
