For example, as it’s commonly known, heat is the manifestation of molecular motion – the chaotic colliding that transforms matter. Ryota Matsumo is one of the artists who seeks to turn chaos into new order in his works.

Fire

Sun – light – fire – life… This is a symbolical chain around which the whole human culture has been organized for thousands of years. They had been worshipped since the times immemorial, influencing numerous beliefs and religions…

Entity is filled with contradictions: things that create can easily be turned into the tools of destruction; the warming heat can grow into the scorching flame. In his piece Fire, writer Jeff Stone reflects upon this amazing duality of life.

CADOC

Perry-Goddard-Latex 1 Nurse silver

In the oriental tradition, Yang is typically associated with masculinity, brightness and heat; whereas Yin’s properties are femininity, darkness and coldness. Even Aristotle believed that women generate less heat than men. Has the perception of female/male sexuality changed over the centuries? The artist known as CADOC touches upon this question in his oeuvre.

Biographies of some artists remind of the Phoenix – a legendary bird that can reborn from its own ashes. Similarly, creators go through pain-of-life troubles, which turn them into the heat of transformations. Lauren Moss believes cathartic experience to be the element that connects the hearts of an artist and a viewer.

Heartfelt Heat

From a foreign place it did come
Hence bidding farewell to foolishly awaiting an apology
Unable to tame all that was rising from within
The blaze hastily took over…

Collateral Heat

Air Force Sta Sargent, Lance Aubrey, hated Vegas. Too damn hot and too many damn people. He joined the Air Force because he liked flying his dad’s Cessna 172 over wide-open spaces as nothing is bigger than a blue empty sky…

Incendio

Smoke started to rise from the primitive bow-drill. Large and in amed her centre grew
The shadow of a small flicker was seen
A fetus was born…

You were too hot to handle, I said, trying to make light with corny clichés. But you could not be consoled. It was hard for me to accept that anyone had the power to upset you so profoundly; somebody other than me…

Heat

In Brooklyn (New York, of course) when it was this kind of hot we’d say, “Boy this is a hot heat!” And was it ever, that August day in 1962. It was the kind of heat so heavy that it filled the spaces between houses…
