This Wasn't What She Had In Mind. (2016)  18" x 24"  Fuse. Acrylic. Paper.

An abstract drawing created with hand-held fuse into white acrylic coated paper.  A unique piece with burned lines and flash marks defining the shapes. 

I've been telling anyone who will listen, the Summer of 2016 is going to be the best ever. Strange things happen  and maybe this isn't what you had in mind. But stay flexible, maybe it will be a blast.

 

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.
