Kuhl and Leyton's Tape Paintings of "Elite Deviance"

October 30, 2013

Using colored tape as their medium, for their latest project Elite Deviance Brad Kuhl and Monique Leyton explored disgraced millionaires and the super-rich of the United States. Depictions of Martha Stewart and Bernie Madoff act as social commentaries and critiques of capitalism in a colorful array of acrylic and bookbinding tape. Other subjects of their work include violent crimes and celebrity mug shots. (via)
