Jim uses candle smoke to paint picture-perfect images on the inside of empty bottles.
I guarantee you’ve never heard of Jim Dingilian, but I promise you need to. He’s a rare artist who has the ability the stretch the limits of our imaginations, and make amazing art out of things we’d never consider. Check out a fraction of his work below, and you’ll be amazed yourself. I promise.
After laying a coat of soot on the lining of the bottles, the artist wipes and etches away with skewers and needles to construct the meticulously defined landscapes.
“The miniature scenes I depict are of locations on the edge of suburbia which seem mysterious or even slightly menacing despite their commonplace nature. The bottles add to the implied narratives of transgression. When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artefacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories” Jim Dingilian says about his art.
It’s truly a wonderment.
