Steven Spazuk.Struggling to get my head around this. He began his career as many artists do, a gradual transition from sketching and drawing to watercolour and acrylic painting. In the 1980s he began using an airbrush and found himself fascinated by the smooth gradients created by the finely sprayed paint. Then, in 2001 an idea struck: what would happen if he exposed a canvas to fire and controlled the imprint of soot left on the surface? Spazuk has hardly left the medium since. Each artwork is the result of a canvas exposed to fire and then gently etched to reveal finers details. Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5Z9dBZHwDm8
