I'm generally interested in art, but for the purpose of my blog, I like to look for art I can imagine in an interior home setting. Well, the other day, I found some and of course, I'm here to share.
These are some of my favourites by French Canadian artist, Steven Spazuk. Since I'm from Montreal, I feel a extra connection to his work. The special thing about these paintings are that they are made with soot. He uses a flame to scorch especially thick paper. The spontaneous designs that appear are what inspire the final product. I love this initial unplanned aspect that defines his work. He also incorporates colour, but my favourites are the black and white ones. There's a certain softness about the soot that gives the pieces a very unique feel. I really love it.
If you are curious for more information about Spazuk and his work, watch this video:
I would gladly have one of his works in my home. Does this type of art "soot" your aesthetic preferences? Sorry, couldn't help it ;)
