Tape Art Crew: Michael Townsend
Part of a small series of drawings exploring the use of tape to recreate famous paintings. Other drawings in the series included renditions of: Van Gogh's Starry Night, Edward Hopper's Nighthawk, a Jackson Pollock drip and splash painting, and Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
While an interesting theoretical exercize, these drawings clarified for us that the joy of Tape Art is in the spontaneity of original storytelling on a large scale.
