"Smoke Signals is my series of environmental landscape works focusing on massive scale wildfires. I’m documenting and revealing “sudden geology” - instant and unpredictable changes to the landscapes in the Western American and Canadian mountain country.

In the Smoke Signals paintings, I want to capture the explosive dance of the wildfire. Emit the heat of the moment. The splatters of smoke and lines of a blaze where the almost amorphous land forms appear to melt. A wildfire is an event which demonstrates both nature's violence and its vulnerability. Though this environment is nothing but hostile for human life, through choice of color these images have a sensuality, a sense of calmness. A pure celebration of the power of nature."
