Uncultivated Black #5

Uncultivated Black #5.  (2014) 12" x 12"  Beautiful and badass! A powerful abstract of black acrylic, char and burns, the overriding impact of this image is made by the  high speed fuses and cannon grade gunpowder blasted onto a white acrylic coated paper. Several "moves" were involved (painting, burning, exploding, scraping, and brushing). A cool explosion engulfed the piece. Smoke clouded the scene.

Part of the Uncultivated Black series.  This work was framed and donated to FCI to help those in need and the homeless.

Primitive, modern, and abstract - a Stick Vega original.  Unframed.

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.
