Steven Spazuk – Bird drawings by artist Steven Spazuk are displayed in every guest room. Since 2001, Spazuk, a Montreal native, has perfected a technique called fumage that allows him to use the flame of a candle or the flame of a torch as a pencil to create his paintings with trails of soot. Using various tools, he sculpts the plumes of soot left behind in response to the shapes that appear on the canvas. Spontaneity and chance are the heart and soul of his creative process. The art in the rooms is part of his most recent collection “Ornithocide”. Spazuk views the live bird as a symbol of freedom and hope and an inspiration for change.
