Mark Langan created wonderful artwork using one of the most mundane of materials: corrugated cardboards!
Years ago, while tearing apart some old corrugated boxes, Langan noticed the wavy, fluted layer of paper (called medium) sandwiched between the smooth sheets of linerboard. “It got me to thinking that, if I were to slice, stack, and glue pieces to each other, some very interesting effects could be created,” he recalls.
Last July, Langan began turning that thought into reality, creating artworks by layering sheets of corrugated into aesthetically pleasing patterns. “The corrugated lends itself well to patterns,” he explains. “When viewed from different angles and lighting, the piece changes.”
