In her largest installation to date, masking tape artist and Wix user Kayt Hester will transform Wix.com's NYC Wix Lounge into a beautiful springtime retreat. Hester will cover the space’s 300 square foot glass conference room with elaborate flora and fauna, all constructed with strips of masking tape.
Hester will be installing her work in the conference room January 27-31, and all Wix Lounge visitors will be able to watch her progress. The main exhibition will feature 5 of her masking tape on canvas pieces, all for sale, with subjects that will range from cicadas to cowgirls.
Hester’s masking tape art was discovered by a Jersey City gallery owner when she brought her portfolio to a meeting. Tucked in the bag were two small pieces of tape art that had been placed there weeks prior for safekeeping. The curator enthusiastically encouraged Hester to do more of masking tape art and to bring the pieces in for consideration.
