After the Fires III
Collograph and silkscreen
Size: 14 x 9.8 x 0.8cm
During the 2020 fires I was overseas, away from family and only seeing pictures of huge flames near us in the Blue Mountains. On my return I made drawings at Bell where the fire had burnt. First with frottage – pressing paper against the remaining burnt tree trunks – they made their own drawings on the underside. Then using silkscreen I included the red of fire, the black of the trees and the ash grey left. Soon I saw the story emerge. The protective cover is a collograph, the bush floor before the fires.
