Un Homme et Son Chien


Un Homme et Son Chien (2017) 48" x 48"

Burns moving over layer of minimalist blues, teals, white and reds. The overriding impact of this image is made by the beauty of super slow and high-speed fuses burned and over-burned onto street art inspired, layered and overpainted panel.

Un Homme et Son Chien?  In French this means "A Man And His Dog".  I'm don't speak French but this sounded cool.  I walk my dog, Archie, a lot.  Sometimes we need to fend things off.



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.
