Artifacts of a Fire,’ the remnants of burnt tree trunks sourced following the 2019 Idyllwild fires in California are raised again, mounted on concrete and layered in select sections with shaped steel, a figurative armour. Subtly transformed but retaining their sense of belonging to the landscape, these beautiful pieces of charred wood stand as majestic guardians and emblems of the strength of nature but also the potential for collective resilience and the courage to persist through adversity.
