Burning Desire


These curious little works are fashioned from spent matches and are the creation of IT specialist Stanislav Aristov, a native of central Russia. The idea came after he entered a photo competition but really had no inspiration for the subject matter. He just happened to strike a match and then noticed the intricate patterns in the burnt wood and match art was created. He has since become a sensation in his home country but the part-time artist has yet to exhibit.    pb

From the artist…

“I guess the funny thing is, I don’t even smoke.

‘My first match was born or maybe burnt by chance at a monthly photo contest just as something I wanted to try.

‘It was while I was watching the match trying to think of something that I began to think of how it represents life.

‘There is burnt for the past, the smoke of memories left and the untouched part of the match the future. The fire is the life.”
