Not sure who the artist is but I really admire the use of tape to put up art, it subverts the power frame and such like, brings the art back down, negating a sense pretention that can sometimes accompany an art work. Also The use of 'barbie' pink to hide aspects is similar to what i have been doing recently. Although would it be more powerful with just one image, does things hide whilst in a grid form?
