Fire Season

Magu was struck by the ferocity of the impact of bush fires in Australia and the influence they have on Australian psyche - cutting across the city and the bush. This work was painted at the height of the 2006/2007 fire season when hundreds of communities on the east coast were threatened by devastating fires, some with tragic endings. This painting tries to capture the essence of an Australian Bush Fire but with a distinctive Magupela interpretation.
