A Dichotomy of Calmness and Chaos would be the description of this series of wall pieces.

Post pandemic, the returning to calmer times and then whiplash into the destruction of war, searing heat, and raging wildfires of the summer.

The resulting work shows peaceful calm, alongside disorganised, scorched orange vistas.

 

By choosing a mix of saggar combustibles carefully, I have an idea of the colour of fumes that will be given off. Trapped by the saggar container lid, the fumes seep into the semi porous surface of the work. The recycled wires wrapped around the piece, twist and burn leaving varied markings.
