January 24th to February 7th, 2015
Since 2001, Steven Spazuk has developed and perfected a unique technique using soot and a candle flame as a paintbrush. With a variety of unusual tools, he "sculpts" the carbon deposits left on the paper to bring up the light. The resulting work is nothing short of remarkable. His most recent exhibition, "Convictions, and other interpretations", garnered international media attention. Articles about his work have been published in the United States, England, Italy, Spain and South America, among others.

Spazuk paints with fire: he has developed and perfected a unique technique using a candle flame as a pencil, and creates his paintings with trails of soot. With a collection of eclectic tools, he intuitively sculpts the carbon featherings on the paper, to reveal the light in his images. The results are remarkable. Portraits, birds, imprints; Spazuk's subject choices echo the fragility and fluidity of his medium. In this exhibition, he demonstrates his exceptional mastery of flame paintings. Revealing combinations and juxtapositions both incongruous and rich in meaning, his recent work speaks clearly of his beliefs and convictions. The shapes and patterns borne from his capricious smokes give way to many organic and personal interpretations.
