The Burning of the Amazon
Limited Edition Print 100
Image 35 x 25cm
Giclee on Hahnemuhle matt photo rag paper
During a news report on the fires in the rainforest I began taking photos of the tv, in order to consider the subject for a painting. I wanted to connect to the emotion of watching this disastrous event and feeling helpless and remote.
I used a limited palette of oils on linen for the original painting, which is now sold. The texture of the linen shows on the print which are professionally printed. There is a 4cm white paper border around the image additional to the image size.
