This is a very interesting collection of matchstick art by Pei-San Ng.
Top: Matches: Passion – “This piece is made up of approximately 2,500 match sticks and a total of 24 hours. The board is a reclaimed art board / plywood. It was previously used as a glueing surface. The type is hand drawn.
Love on fire represents romance and passion or destructions and jealousy. It is raw and gritty,” states Pei-San Ng.
Matches: Dollar – “This is the first match stick piece I made and it was made for the Chicago Art Department $200 exhibition. This was a collaboration between Nathan and I. I wanted to make art with balsa sticks, specifically a skeletal framed apple.”
Matches: Transformation – “This hawk piece is partially burned from claws to head to body. I am intrigued and mesmerized by the in-between state and by the fragility of the burned matches. The in-between is where the excitement happens, the point where the red heads turns to white before turning to ash, it’s the tipping point.”
Matches: Mookie’s Sneakers – “This pair of sneakers were made for my dear friend and roommate, Chris Hales, AKA DJ Tapedek, AKA Mookie. He passed away early Spring 2010.
