Gun Powder Art… an amazingly interesting, diverse, and challenging to control medium. Artistic experimentation has taken me a lot of places and this if by far the most intriguing medium I’ve worked with yet. Not being able to predict or control the final outcome is something I love. I start with an idea of what I want to piece to look like, choose from the techniques I’m learning to get that appearance, and ignite the gunpowder.
I’m inspired by the work of Cai Guo-Qiang http://www.caiguoqiang.com/ and Robert Wiebel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcLbvp_eaOw Check them out, I think you’ll be fascinated by what they create by igniting gunpowder.
