Mark Khaisman recreates images of historical figures, scenes from old movies, and 20th-century propaganda art using only layers of brown parcel tape on Plexiglas panels, which he then installs into light boxes so that they resemble pixelated computer images. His subjects have included iconic Hollywood movies such as Hitchcock’s Spellbound and James Bond, as well as Albert Einstein and Julius Caesar. Transforming a mundane material into noir-ish images rich in shadow and texture, Khaisman has said, “When installed in a light box, the tape images evoke both the seduction of the cinema screen and the physical presence of minimalist sculptures.”
