012 Playing with Fire
61 x 51.5cm / 24 x 20.5 in
Paper on Cardboard
Lighter-burned holes on a house of cigar cutouts and red rips on colored paper and Madrid maps on cardboard.
Cigars are shaped like logs, so I thought about the log cabin building toys from when I was a kid. Madrid's park is surrounded by flames. The colored paper is meant to lift the house off of the while background.
Logs are tough and powerful, but to buy into that is to ignore the dangers. There is symmetry; and decay.
This piece will arrive in-frame. It is currently in storage in Madrid. The cost of arranging its safe arrive to you has already been factored into the price.
