This body of work is called “Notre-Dame is Burning”. Throughout all the disasters which have taken place in the last four years, the destruction of Notre -Dame stands out for me symbolically. I was fortunate to see it standing in person just three weeks before it burned, and I watched it burn in realtime online from my home in Vancouver, WA. All that history and art, sacred space to millions, built by human hands, standing witness for 857 years, consumed by flames. I could not stop thinking about the statue of Joan of Arc inside.

The paintings in this body of work were especially time consuming to complete, highly detailed and more intimate spatially than my prior work, inch by inch created with tiny marks, tiny figures and shapes, interconnecting and crowding out negative space. Painting allows me to detach and experience pure focus, enabling the problem solving part of my mind to take the lead, while compacting and organizing fear, confusion, grief, and anger, inspired by this distressing time in history.
