Steve Spazuk’s Drawings Created With Fire

Artist Steve Spazuk creates drawings with a medium usually reserved for destroying things: fire.  Using a candle or torch Spazuk works the flame much like a pencil drawing with the soot left behind on the canvas.  In a way akin to automatic drawing, he doesn’t direct his hand but accepts the chance images  that appear on the surface.  Spazuk then “sculpts” the soot left on each canvas into its final image.  Speaking about his unique flame drawn process he says:

” This in-the-moment creative practice coupled with the fluidity of the soot, creates a torrent of images, shadows and light. Fueled by the quest of a perfect shape that has yet to materialize, I concentrate in a meditative act and surrender to capture the immediacy of the moment on canvas.”
