Rob Tarbell

Rob creates images with smoke. The curator at Les Yeux du Monde explained his process to me, which is executed by placing the paper or canvas onto the ceiling, then Rob burns with a torch below, moving the flames as one would a brush. Sometimes he will place stencils on the canvas or paper to get exact shapes and lines.

When I saw this horse I immediately loved it! Horses have a freedom that these smoke drawings convey and make you want to be part of.
