Bonfire (2009), wool and acrylic on canvas, 45cmx45cm
Another piece inspired by fire and flame, Bonfire is made of glued wool on canvas, imitating the twists of logs and branches being burned. When the fire season approaches, people on large properties would clear their land of potential fire fuel and host bonfire parties – a good BBQ and toasted marshmallows.
***NOTE: The black paint shows a glow in harsh lighting conditions, therefore the image of the work was taken in natural light. The artwork appears better in person.
