Duct Tape Paintings
Eight 10" x 10" Duct Tape Paintings (2005)
Duct Tape Paintings (2004-2005)
I recently bought a huge roll of silver duct tape after learning
that it served as a fantastic foot blister protector. That's
not really connected to using it in artwork. Having always
been fascinated by the remnants of posters and past billboard
advertisements, with rips and tears and peels and the under
layers peeking through the top layers - I've tried to recreate
that a bit using my own ways.
So, here, I've taken duct tape and at different stages of
a painting, sealed parts of the canvas while painting on the
rest. At the right time, I peeled the duct tape off (in most
cases), revealing a slightly less touched part, older, that
was free of the more recent painting noise on top of it.
The result I think is pretty interesting. For me, anyway.
