For the past decade, Steven Spazuk has honed his technique of using fire to create his “paintings of soot”. Spazuk uses a lit candle or small torch as a pencil of sorts, and then brushes, scrapes, and sculpts the soot left behind into figurative images.
“Serendipitously, I am now encountering the reverse side of the mosaic. I am interested in the deconstruction of prescribed shapes and contours and an eclectic approach to a compilation of ideas which, like the flame of my candle, will lead me to more fortuity in the creation of my art.”
