Wyoming-based artist Danny Sherving uses flames not to destroy but to create. He begins by meticulously assembling gunpowder on wood and canvas, depicting animal portraits, mostly creatures from the Grand Teton National Park where he grew up and resides to this day. Once the ammunition is arranged, Shervin ignites it and everything erupts into fire. The flame travels throughout the entire composition, burning the image into the surface. Danny sells his pieces online and the prices range from $35 for a 5-by-7 inch piece to all the way up to four figures for unique large complex works.
