'CONTROL POINT' art project

This is the ashcloud from the Northcliffe fire of just over a year ago. It is one of many shots I took from home, tracking the fire's progress day by day, and observed with a mixture of absolute awe and trepidation. It impacted lives but thanks to major fire-fighting efforts, none were lost. I was in the middle of my grant application for a planned new body of artwork: the theme was the contrast of order and chaos in the Australian landscape, a new take on that old Romantic era subject of 'man vs nature'. Fire has always played a big part in my art, both as a subject and literally as a source of art materials. A potent metaphor for nature out of our control... now it was playing out before
