Following the catastrophic Hermit's Peak fire near my home in New Mexico, I sought to disrupt climate denial and spark concern for our planet by bringing the devastating fires of recent years into domestic space. In these paintings, I simulated the look of French toile wallpaper  -- meant to evoke associations with European colonization and capitalist exploitation -- by hand-carving rubber stamps of some of my favorite trees and plants from wilderness areas. Peeling paper, flames and crumbling plaster expose the underlying structure, much in the same way I hope to reveal the internal or psychological impacts of destructive change.
