About the artwork

Forest Fire

My sculpture in this exhibition is a wood carving of trees on fire. My work for some years has been about the destruction of the natural environment. This year I have made a series of woodcut prints based on the Australian Bush fires. This carving is the first sculpture I have made on the subject.

I only use found or managed wood for my sculptures and woodblock prints.
