There Was A Vase.  (2016)  18" x 24"  Fuse. Acrylic. Paper.

Energized stems in a wobbly vase made with hand-held fuse burned into white acrylic coated paper.  A unique piece with burned lines and flash marks defining the shapes. 

So where did I find my inspiration?

Renee has been working on some arrangements for Thanksgiving.  They are layered and textured and look pretty good.  This slightly distorted vase was my idea.  Simple. Beautiful.

Unframed.

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.
