Caedmon. The Norwegian Warrior. - Available Exclusively At The Century House

550.00

Caedmon. The Norwegian Warrior.  (2016)  18" x 24"  Fuse. Acrylic. Paper.

A portrait with an explosive personality. Created with multiple gunpowders and high-speed fuse and finished with hand-held fuse into white acrylic coated paper.  The hyper-fine gunpowder in the neck is a Vega trademark. A unique piece with burned lines and flash marks defining the man. It has a unique energy and feels like it is alive.

Caedmon was created during an interview with Erika Janik of Wisconsin Public Radio.

Black metal frame, matt, glass.

Primitive.  Modern.  Explosive.  

American gunpowder artist, Vega carefully places powder and fuses on the surface of the art, which he positions horizontally on the floor (or blast table). When ignited, first the fuses burns instantly along the cord lines, igniting the gunpowder and creating a blast, which then vanish in clouds of smoke. The result is a textured surface that looks and feels like an explosion—the art 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.
