Wildfire in California
Oil, graphite and collage on paper
61 x 45 cm each
The series of paintings titled Wildfire in California was painted during one of the most destructive of North California's wildfires as smells of ash and burnt invaded the studio. Acres of wild nature were destroyed as well as the lives of many leaving more questions than answers about how to cope with a warmer and drier climate. The paintings intend to keep a record of the sensory experience of the event evoking its wildness, luminosity and destructiveness.
