Dear friends

Let’s end a busy year with  a special sale. As always, we are a very small team handling at times heavy loads of emails and questions. We will get back to everyone eventually and are grateful for your patience in the meantime.

If you are new to these kinds of special drops, please read through the description and the FAQ’s at the bottom of this page and let us know if you have any further questions, we are happy to help. 

I truly appreciate everyone who is interested in one of my artworks and I will try my best to accommodate all requests. Though probably not everyone will get an artwork through this sale I will make sure to be fair and keep the ones who might miss out this time in mind for any future sales.

Thanks so much for your support and trust, I really appreciate it, 
All the best, 

Max

This is the big one: with 11.5 x 4.3 feet (3.5 x 1.3 Meter) in size it is one of the larges artworks I made so far. And surely one of the most detailed pieces ever. We decided to split it into 5 separate frames in order to handle the logistics and keep the costs for our collectors down. 

I wish I had counted the working hours. All I can say is that it took a good chunk out of my life, but I enjoyed the exhilarating, nerve-wracking journey that is captured in parts by the video above. 

We are happy to send you more photos of this artwork on request.

It will be the center piece of our booth during Art Basel Miami.
Also, I will create a few different versions of this motif, so please be patient with an artist who tries to give every single detail the attention it deserves to form an artwork that I love in the end and (almost) don’t want to give away.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why are some artworks reserved before the sale starts?

Newsletter subscribers got a notice ahead of the official opening time and have the right to reserve their favorite artwork. Feel welcome to subscribe yourself here:

 

 

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.


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. 

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 we 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. 

Watch the video for some visuals on the framing and installation process:

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 send you a new adapter for free, or 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.

How do I pay for an artwork?

Simply by bank transfer or Paypal. Payments are only due once we walked through all questions you might have and you give the green light for a purchase. 

Can I pay in installments?

We offer payments in installments, usually starting with a down-payment of 20 percent. The outstanding amount can be split into monthly installments of your choice.
