Smoke-Filled Glass Bottles Brushed To Create Beautiful Dark Drawings

Published 2 years ago

Jim Dingilian’s artwork is striking not just for its dark atmosphere, but for the unusual way in which he creates it. In his talented hands, smoke-filled glass bottles become beautiful and gloomy scenes of suburban decay.

His artistic process is similar to that used by someone building a ship-in-a-bottle, as he has to use brushes and other tools mounted on dowels to remove the smoke coating the glass and paint his picture.

The choice of glass bottles as a medium is perfect, because these sort of suburban backlots will always have a discarded liquor bottle or two. As he explains, “When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories.
