Gallery: Euphony with a Black-capped Chickadee

French-Canadian artist Steven Spazuk makes use of a singular approach for creating his artwork—fumage, a mode of directing the flame and smoke of a candle towards his canvas. Spazuk brushes the leftover sooty residue and smoked acrylic paint to create his otherworldly compositions.

Spazuk says his current Euphony collection (on show on the the Adelson Galleries in Palm Seaside, Florida) provides the microphone to birds to broadcast their “symphonies at daybreak and ballads at night time” and “to sing their lament, loud and robust.”

“Birdsong continuously thrums in concord, celebrating the fragile net of life,” he says. “However the countryside is falling silent…. [Euphony] is a collection about hope and making an attempt to encourage change.”
