Bush fire

Erin Knight

Acrylic, oil, mixed media

This artwork was created whilst the bush fires raged in the eastern states. I was feeling empathy for all of the people effected and a sense of grief for the victims of this natural disaster. I included the nets as a metaphor for all that connects us as well as restricts us. The fire can spread out like a net over areas , engulfing what it captures ,however it is out of these events we all also see the community connecting and stronger evidence of the vital networks that keep us afloat.
