Mark-making Artist Reference

Standard

So one artist I find interesting is Cai Guo Qiang. He used gunpowder to create the patterns on paper, setting them off carefully after sprinkling gunpowder in the particular pattern that he is going for. Obviously in Singapore it would be dangerous (and illegal) to use gunpowder so it is not a medium I’m gonna actually use. But his methods are interesting, having to destroy something to create the work, and this might be an aspect of mark-making I can explore?
