ABOUT: 'Untold Fairytales' was created by Max Zorn as the grand finale in a surreal series combining a dreamy subject of elegant women who have tamed and curtailed the softness of animals we dream of touching. Like a bedtime story that enters our imaginary world of friendships with nature, we can almost feel the serene stillness of the winter fog and ice blanketing New York City.
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.
