ARTIST STATEMENT: “California and the entire North West US and Canada have been greatly affected by horrendous fires in the last few years. Since the recent fires are more and more reaching into urban areas, the toxic pollutants will cause dangers on both land and sea.
This piece was inspired by the recent Santa Rosa, Redding and Paradise fires with smoke and air quality the like of which we have never seen before. The wind patterns pushed extremely hazardous air quality into the San Francisco bay and inland to the central valley. Although I was just an hour away, the worst quality was over three hours away. Total damage is not yet known in the most recent fire because the blessing of rain has it’s own issues.”
