After months of preparing new artwork I’m ready to get the exhibition season started with fresh new pieces. Things begin in Krefeld with a solo show, “Art & Architecture” (10th September), before the Stick Together Gallery brings me to Zurich (Contemporary Art Fair Zurich, September 30th – October 2nd ), London (Moniker Art Fair, October 6th – 9th), Cologne (Blooom, Art.Fair, October 26th – 3th) and Miami’s ArtBasel Miami weekend (Art Miami Aqua, November 30th – December 3rd). You’ll find more info to each show in the exhibition section. And let me know if you will be around.

It’s the first special sale since six months, and I wanted to bring new artworks to the table. Please keep in mind that there is an order limit of two artworks per household. First come first serve.

FAQs:

What is a special sale?

I’m aware that prices for my artworks have been rising once they become public. My success as an artist wouldn’t be possible though without the ongoing interest and support of a global community that not necessarily has the deep pockets for art as collectors do. Therefore I traditionally offer selected new works or special editions for a short period exclusively on my website and below their usual price range.

These offers are limited to two works per household, work on a first-come-first-serve basis and are only up until the special sale is sold out and/or closed.

[wpanchor id=”series”]What is a series?

Repeating a theme allows me to work faster and therefore offer original artworks more affordably compared to a one-time-only motif.
Each single artwork is of course an original made from scratch, unique and signed. Although I try to have the artworks look alike, each one has its own character and differs slightly from the others. See it like the repeating performance of a Broadway play: although it follows the same script each night has a different dynamic.

Why is there a waiting list?

When an artwork comes in a series it doesn’t mean I have already created all versions of it. With popular editions it takes me some time to follow up on the demand.

Are these works going to last?

Yes, the works are going to last for decades to come. When finished, all works are sealed airtight to prevent humidity and air to dry out the adhesive. We also add an additional UV-resistant acrylic glass that not only protects the artwork from fading due to sunlight, but also encases the layers of tape between the two pieces of acrylic glass. If you detect any signs of aging please contact us at info@maxzorn.com and we will help you at no extra cost with restorations of the artwork within the first 5 years after purchase.

[wpanchor id=”lightbox”]What about the light boxes:

Light is what brings tape art to life. Like the effect of stained glass windows, light filters through the many layers of tape, creating a visual image. In order to display the works best indoor, I build customized light boxes which support the motifs with warm, low temperature light, individually adjusted to the specific artwork. Due to the long lifetime and low temperature of LED light you may keep the light on permanently.

Dimmer and switches for these LED systems are not part of this offer but widely available online and affordable (between 5 and 20 Euros). I will gladly help if you need recommendation.

What if the light goes off one day?

Adapters can die after a few years but the LED light is incredibly durable. The LED lights I use have an average life expectancy of 50.000 hours. In case they fail nonetheless, just contact us at info@maxzorn.com and we’ll provide you with all instructions to replace the LED-strip. It’s a module system that allows exchanging parts relatively easily.

Is there a battery to charge the lightbox?

All light boxes have to be connected to the electric grid. An adapter/charger (that matches your region) and an extension cord are naturally included in your purchase. Experiments with batteries weren’t fruitful yet, simply because the costs of the frame would increase unreasonably.  Though somewhat annoying there are ways to hide the thin cable that connects lightbox and plug. During exhibitions e.g. we hide cables simply by taping them to the wall and painting the tape over with wall color.
