Untitled Project 001 is an exploration of permanence, loss and performance. Made out of candle materials, this piece is meant to be lit aflame until it is no longer present. The art then exists in the wax runoff, the burning flames and the scent that lingers in the air. The flickering of the flames combined with the strong scents of the candles ensnare and overwhelm the senses, creating an experience that captivates viewers as they watch.
Untitled Project 001 (40 wax lemons in a grid, burning), 2020. 18.5”x 11.5”x 5”. Paraffin and beeswax, candle melts, crayon, wick, essential oils. 45 minute performative duration.
