The extraordinary art work on cave walls is the first example of fire painting, something I'm experimenting with this weekend. This image (working drawing) is a combination of the soot of a live candle flame and gold acrylic skins. It's my take on the Phoenix myth. Part of a larger studio project at the university.
I’ve included this video about Steven Spazuk, an artist who is a fire painter. In it he reflects on the evolution of his work and his connection to something larger through his work with fire.
