Mark Khaisman
is a Ukrainian
visual artist. He
creates his art by
applying layers
of translucent
packing tape on clear
Plexiglas panels.
He sees tape as the
most direct way of
manipulating light.
I started doing this work like a
traditional stained glass artist, but
with tape I found I could continue
my conversation with light, in a more
expedient manner. I might have never
thought of this “medium” if not for
my working in stained glass. Yet,
tapes happened to be much more
than just a replacement of the stained
glass medium. It miraculously
bonded together all my previous
It takes me about a week to
make a new work usually. I
use all kinds and colours of
translucent packing tape, 3
to 6 rolls. One roll of tape is
55 yds, so one work might be
from 100 to 300 yds “long”.
It requires concentration and patience. When things go right
it’s enjoyable. While working I’m constantly balancing between
order and chaos. Though I try not to lose control completely,
I’m not aware of every move I am taking, so by the time the
piece is done, I don’t exactly know how it has happened.
This ongoing series is based on candid
celebrity parties pictures from mid-fifties
Hollywood. “James and Ursula” depicts
James Dean and Ursula Andress at
a nightclub. When I run out of tape I’ll
start thinking about something else.
