Gallery: Euphony with a Black-capped Chickadee

French-Canadian artist Steven Spazuk uses a unique technique for creating his art—fumage, a style of directing the flame and smoke of a candle toward his canvas. Spazuk brushes the leftover sooty residue and smoked acrylic paint to create his otherworldly compositions.

Spazuk says his recent Euphony series (on display at the the Adelson Galleries in Palm Beach, Florida) gives the microphone to birds to broadcast their “symphonies at dawn and ballads at night” and “to sing their lament, loud and strong.”

“Birdsong constantly thrums in harmony, celebrating the delicate web of life,” he says. “But the countryside is falling silent…. [Euphony] is a series about hope and trying to inspire change.”

I love animals and am glad to share fun facts and stories about our four-legged and feathery friends, etc. I also try to teach people how to take good care of their pets, to create the best environment for them in the family.
