Fire drawing by Glithero
Published on September 28, 2012
The protagonist in the Fire Drawings is a flame. It travels through time over a path of flammable screen-printed paint, multiplying or merging together, drawing, leaving a decorative charcoal trace as it goes along.
Each piece in the series choreographs a different path of a flame, that starts burning from a single fuse and then branches and multiples towards a climax; A burning circle of fire. The remaining charcoal pattern resonates a memory of a moment that has already been. Literally and metaphorically it is the ashes of a process.
