I maintain a broader definition of “tape” including off the shelf varietals found in hardware and art stores across the globe, custom manufactured rolls and original silk screened textures printed on luxurious papers with adhesive backings produced in the studio. Thus the palette does not blend as paint blends, but is drawn with a knife and assembled (akin to woodblock printers).

The Tapings are built on translucent drafting film and framed between two plates of plexiglass. Backlit, the interplay of positive to negative is revealed in the luminescent joinery.
