Restraint

500.00

Restraint (2012). 24" x 48"  Acrylic, gunpowder, fire, and water on hard board panel. Abstract rings are  burned black and gray on a ice blue background with a lot of texture.  Black metal frame. Primitive, modern, and explsive - 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.
