My body of work, Those Who Favour Fire, represents the Australian bushfires that plagued the nation during late 2019 to early 2020. It acknowledges the fine line between the destructive nature of the blazes and their tragic beauty. My artistic intent in using acrylics in such a small scale was to explore the sensitive technicality required to create a range of atmospheric landscape paintings.
