Hubris, Beauty and Greed: Soot Paintings by Steven Spazuk



A new series of soot paintings by Canadian artist Steven Spazuk. Combining acrylic and a technique he refers to as fumage, he portrays his subjects from the flame of a candle or lighter with trails of soot.

Using various tools such as a brush, feather and knife, he intuitively sculpts the plumes of soot left behind in response to the shapes that appear on the canvas.

The title Hubris, Beauty and Greed explores the topic of humanity’s relationship with the natural world.

Spazuk expresses his concern for the vulnerability of all species on the planet.

As human population grows, other animals are disappearing and our collective hubris. And insatiable greed for more resources are squeezing out irreplaceable beauty.
