In 2020 fires raged through the Blue Mountains of NSW. The triptych Fire, smoke and ash was made in response to these events. In this relief print, iconic landforms – plateau, escarpment and valley – are subsumed and transformed by the effects of fire.
Landforms were created using the woodcut medium. The atmospheric effects of fire, smoke and ash were overprinted using pieces of etched and cut lino. A series of three prints was made.
