The Burnt Field
The Burnt Field (2016), acrylic on canvas, 75cmx20cm
From lush green to a burnt red, this work represents the destruction of a grass fire. Grass fires are not as hot as bush fires, but are much quicker, meaning those who decide to leave their homes last minute are often caught on the roads.
Instead of showing the ashes, this work focuses on the process – the colours show change, as grey ashes symbolise tragedy, some fires are part of natures process of regrowth and cleansing.
