Abstract

The sharing of stories about devastating fire was explored in an installation of nine paintings that pictorially insinuated these other stories into those of the 1967 bush fires. Fragmentary images derived from an array of sources pertaining to the aftermath of other fires were used to amplify the reading of overwhelming fire beyond the local. Furthermore, the paintings collectively pictured an abstracted re-building of place driven not from a sense of nostalgia but from the empathetic inclusion of current, diverse communities, narratives and aspirations.
