Masking tape artist Kayt Hester creates images from the familiar to the abstract with hand-torn black masking tape.

In her former life, she was a still-life photographer for publications such as like Martha Stewart Living. She left her photography career shortly after 9/11, using leftover darkroom tape as a creative outlet to weave her intrepretation of people and events on canvas in an unconventional medium.

She has since gone on to be featured in Nylon Magazine and be awarded solo shows throughout Jersey City. She has collaborated with the Jersey City Museum, Canco Lofts and many others on window installation pieces.

Kayt Hester's latest solo show will challenge viewers to visualize music unlike ever before with art inspired by the song titles and lyrics of the Pixies.

Implications - Simplicity and unconventional materials can lend a unique perspective to intricate designs.
