Silva Inferno is an exhibition inspired by the glow and the power of fire and its role in deforestation. The exhibition depicts the beauty, tragedy and regeneration of a forest during and after the burn.
The images have developed through my drawings, observations and research of increased wildfires worldwide due to industrialised forestry practices and climate change. In particular the ferocity of the largescale Australian Wildfires of 2019 and a visit to Millstream in Western Australia’s Pilbara region after a controlled burn.
