Smoke Art – Smoke art, in its simplest definition is art that features smoke. The smoke can be considered the subject or the medium to create something else. Some focus on its own beauty and pureness, others use it as ‘paint’ to create stunning artwork.
In this article we’ll take a look at awesome artworks by famous artist Jim Dingilian. He turn basic form of SMOKE into utmost creative artworks you have ever seen.
Dingilian was born in York, PA but spent seven years of his childhood in Waterloo, Belgium before returning to the United States, receiving his MFA in photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1996. Represented by the McKenzie Fine Art Gallery in New York, Dingilian’s work centers around subtractive images on found objects.
Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay.
Just have a look here. You would be amazed to see his work.
The idea of using discarded glass bottles to house scenes of suburban decay was intentional and perfectly fitting; “When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories,” writes the artist.
