South Korea Wildfires 06.03 Sky News

Oil on birch wood panel

30 x 40 x 3cm


South Korea Wildfires 06.03 Sky News was painted from a news report on Sky News about a wildfire near a nuclear plant in South Korea. The title refers to the place, date and source for the painting. Fascination with the image began with the draped appearance of the fireline appearing in bursts amongst the trees, and also the small pocket of fire smouldering on the other side of the road.

It was painted as part of a project I undertook in 2022 to paint a year of reportage images on the effects of climate change. I painted 46 works in 12 months. You can read more about the project in my News section. From October 2023 – April 2024 the entire project titled You And I Are Earth was exhibited at Firstsite Museum and Gallery in Colchester, Essex.

My aim in painting the project was to put a pause on these dramatic images which are fed to us through our tvs and phones and can pass us by in under a second. I wanted to see what an entire year of my edit of these images would look like. Spending time with each had a profound effect on me.
