Artist Statement:

In 2019 it seemed that the earth was on fire, with protests, bombings and major forest fires throughout the world. Within a few weeks into the new year came a quietening, with the new threat of COVID-19. The virus has made my demographic vulnerable and fearful of its effects. Silence the Earth – Fire references a variety of images taken from the International section of the London Free Press (Aug – Dec 2019), combined with my immobile state.

Vintage wines behind these works are Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages (France, 2018, $18) and the one special bottle, Chateau Giscours Margaux (France, 2015, $195). Many thanks to Ron and Susan Holliday for donating the wine, and also to Anonymous for donating 2 of vintage bottles In Honour of Rob O’Dowda’s Birthday!
