Jim Dingilian’s work comes in the form of a message in a bottle, which he draws with the tip of candle on the glass’s surface. The result is a smokey image nestled within the bottle’s concave shape. Dingilian uses his unconventional medium in a way that evokes India ink, impressively handling the flame like a brush. His scenes are well-defined and highly detailed. Dingilian has fun with layering opaque and translucent layers of smoke, resulting in complex scenes within each vessel.
