These photos show the action-packed routine of the steel painting process. This is a violent and potentially dangerous process that requires a very high degree of precision and control. In these photos, I am creating the form of a steel painting with a heavy duty torch, crowbar, sledgehammer, and chisel.
The 'smoke' is actually steam from the water I use to keep the steel from getting too hot. The crowbar is slightly bent from beating the steel. I have been perfecting the process I use to create my steel paintings since 1999.
