the drawn outline

trees sketched by fire

as easily
as I change my clothes

one moment—City
the next—Chaos”

Forest Fire

Forest Fire, assemblage in a matchbox, 2020

In the aspen forests of New Mexico, fire is necessary for survival. Without forest fires the aspen trees won’t flourish. They’re a link between life and destruction, change and death. Of course, with the ramping up of climate change, fires in the Southwest are also terrifying and will probably become more frequent due to water scarcity and a hotter climate.

With the addition of photography using the readymade of a woman’s body, ideas of inside/outside, the destructive and nurturing behavior of humans, and the container of “femaleness” are all issues being raised.
