From Steven Spazuk:

For the past 10 years, I have developed and perfected a unique technique that allows me to use the flame of a candle or the flame of a torch as a pencil to create my paintings with trails of soot. Using various tools, I intuitively sculpt the plumes of soot left behind in response to the shapes that appear on the canvas.

Spontaneity and chance are the heart and soul of my creative process. I do not censor. I do not direct. I open myself to the experience. This in-the-moment creative practice coupled with the fluidity of the soot, creates a torrent of images, shadows and light. Fuelled by the quest of a perfect shape that has yet to materialize, I concentrate in a meditative act and surrender to capture the immediacy of the moment on canvas.

The human body fascinates me. Bodies in a perpetual metamorphosis are the language with which I express my thoughts on the human condition: emotions, opinions, stories that are born of my uncensored psyche.

I see fragments of things, events, people, as a powerful metaphor of modern life and, even more so, of the way we perceive things through our senses and our minds. My work expresses how every one of us is a constituent fragment of the human community.
