The Neon Man No. 1

1,200.00

The Neon Man No. 1.  (2014)  18" x 24"  Gunpowder. Fuse. Blended Spray Paints. Paper.

This dynamic piece was created in a live online event for musician Freedy Johnston. The digital art of the work is being used as album/cd art and other merchandise for his new album Neon Repairman.

Signed by both Stick Vega and Freedy Johnston.

Black metal frame. 22 x 28.  Matted. 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.
