A dancing female, hanging bags and a the remains of a fireplace isolated from its home reference the Thomas Fire that began December 8, 2017 in Southern California. While keeping one eye on this merciless natural disaster, it casts the other to the question of whether the evacuations and tragedies of late 2017 due to climate-related events is about to become the new norm.
This is the second in a series of paintings which focus on the central character of a female dancer, whom I began painting as a celebratory talisman of 2017’s ‘silence breakers.’ The paintings juxtapose oblique symbols of current events, both public and private, with the fierce, free spirit of the feminine.
