SET FIRE TO RAIN

ADELE portrait | RED aka Hong Yi - I’m doing a 4 part project involving the 4 basic elements: fire, water, wind and earth.

So for FIRE, I chose to do ADELE’s portrait (also, I wanted to do a portrait of an Brit after the London Olympics!). Her song ‘Set Fire to the Rain' inspired me to use candles and fire as my painting materials…but why?

To me, ADELE was probably singing about the pain of a lost relationship. Rain may be a metaphor for her tears she cried, and she is setting fire to it to burn and destroy her pain. I’ve used blue candles to represent tears, and by setting fire to them, they melt and flow into each other, forming a portrait of ADELE.
