Scorched Portraiture on wood
in an ambulatory and visually immersive environment

Artist Statement

I use blow torches to draw on wood with fire through my recognition of the relative density and grain structure in my chosen medium – wood. I explore relationships between man and nature through the use of organic materials and primal tactics.  The larger than life faces I create are exposed and vulnerable, visceral and raw, created using a traditionally destructive element.  I view my artistic practice as a collaboration with nature, instilling new purpose and identity by transforming wood into ash in the primal fusion of fire and earth.
