Art Contests Accepted Artists
I am fascinated by the surprising and unexpected. Here I present “Fire Drawings”, a series in which I harness the unpredictable power of fire to create evocative portraits. “It’s like seeing faces in clouds”, the final portraits are a reflection of the essence created by the soot, “like an apparition, the features appear within the flow”.
These unique portraits, sometimes whimsical or macabre, are created using the soot created by the explosion of matches. The marks are wistful, graceful, explosive and always surprising. I enjoy the unexpected lines and forms created by the burn and the soot. I am always exploring new materials to burn, looking for different variations of color and suffusion. I see these portraits as either mythical or celestial how you see them I leave to you.
