Fire and Flood
Fire & Flood is part of a series of landscapes I have been working on, reflecting on the climatic events of recent times; drought, fire, flood. The era of #anthropocene.
This piece was painted in response to the Black Summer bushfires in 2020 here in Australia, in which 1 billion native animals perished. A short time later - followed by 1 in 100 year floods which destroyed whole towns. We can no longer call these events 1 in 100 years because they are happening every year or two.
However, it is heartening to see new growth in the burnt areas - nature is resilient - but whether humans can do enough to ensure our own ultimate survival remains a question.
This painting received a "Highly Commended" award in the Kinglake Art Show in 2020.
