Bend All Alone

Bend All Alone.  (2014) 24" x 24". The overriding impact of this abstract image is made by the beauty of super fine grade gunpowder blasted onto hardboard painted with soft yellows (acrylic). The name was derived from the single seductive line.  Bend All Alone was blown up in sub-zero temperature which inhibited the flames and explosion, but there was still a lot of smoke!

Black metal frame.

Primitive, modern, and abstract - a Stick Vega original.  Black Metal Frame.

American gunpowder artist, Vega places powder and fuses on the surface of the board, which he positions horizontally on the floor. When ignited, first the fuses burns instantly along the cord lines, igniting the gunpowder and creating loud bangs and flashes of fire, which then vanish in clouds of smoke. The result is a textured surface that looks and feels like an explosion—the acrylic paint on panel is blackened, charred, and erupted, arrested in a state of being created in a flash.

When the fuse is lit there is a moment of uncertainty. What will happen? It is at that moment that true art exists.
