Since August, I've been painting wildfires. I think of 2017 as the year the West burned. These paintings are a response to the fierce beauty and power of fires as they move across the landscape. Politically and culturally speaking, 2017 unfurled with the same intensity, tearing through customs and institutions with destructive, unpredictable force.
