Rocky Buzz (2019) 18" x 24"
Introducing Rocky Buzz. Rocky Buzz is another creation in the line of “Buzz dog” burned paintings. Rocky Buzz is a happy character was made by hand burning fuse with multiple blue acrylics on coated paper. He is a unique personality and on the move.
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.
