Further Adventures in Candle Making
Studio time today saw me explore and experiment with candles, wax and how the common roles of candles can be re-contextualised.
As with the beginning of all my creative endeavors, the source of enquiry is creative processes and tour relationship between creative action and material.
A narrative ensues that initially casts candles within the roles of contemplation and reflection – the time it takes to arrive at or develop an idea. However, upon further scrutiny, it becomes clear that should these candles be lit, the surfaces that are needed to address an idea would be lost. This highlights the struggle between thought and execution.
