Oil Paint on stretched canvas, ready to hang.
Signed on the back.
The Central Highlands Bushfires of 2016 were for many Australians, the canary in the mine in terms of signalling the catastrophic impacts of Climate Change. In a tradition akin to environmental dystopian literature “Setting Fire” draws on a historical context to imagine a new rendering and places the iconic Barn Bluff at the centre of a smouldering landscape. The walking track has dissolved into ash as the sludge and slurry rolls off the canvas frame (marked by heavy palette knife work). There is no time here for the ‘beautiful landscape’ as the sky masquerades as both villain and hero.
