A special mixed media piece that is part of a set, Nude in a Veld Fire 1 is a powerful reaction to my thoughts and feelings about the place of my birth; South Africa. Fire to me is a symbol of transmuting the ego into divinity. Fire is also symbol of rebirth, of the beautiful aftermath that pain can bring. In South Africa, Veld Fires were a common occurrence and a stunning yet terrible thing to behold. After a fire, the smell of the dry burnt grass , crunching underneath your shoes and the new shoots of green grass give the impression that the fire was a cleansing force.
