B(l)oom Nine (2016) 96" x 36"

Groovy white pop flowers made with a bang. The overriding impact of this image is made by the beauty of super slow and high-speed fuses along with cannon grade gunpowder blasted onto a aqua blue panel.  

Several "moves" were involved (burning, exploding, scraping, brushing, and hand fuse burning). Magnificent flames and sparks engulfed the piece. Smoke clouded the scene.  The flowers were finished with hand-held, super-slow burning fuse.

This piece is one of the popular B(l)oom series.

Framed with black metal frame in 4 36 x 24 panels.

Primitive, modern, and abstract - a Stick Vega original.  

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 a moment of uncertainty. What will happen? It is at that moment that true art exists.
