The Accidental Arsonist!

Long Jump,
2001,
Acrylic on paper,
2.5 x 72 x 6 inches

The Accidental Arsonist series began with a newscast about a brushfire caused by a grasshopper. The insect was incinerated on an electric fence, sparking the blaze. The series includes a wildfire prevention awareness message through the before and after scenes of intricate beadwork set in wood carved in the shape of trees. Ironically, the flamable wooden sculpture is a locking match box and striker.
