Wild Fire

  • 3rd October 2020 to 1st November 2020

The immersive drawing 'Wild Fire' was installed at the Centre of Gravity, a group exhibition at Soapworks in Bristol. For the exhibition Emma Stibbon created a five metre wide wall drawing ‘Wild Fire’ depicting the aftermath of a forest fire. Drawn in charcoal, partially recovered from a recent forest fire in Wareham, Dorset, her monumental drawing includes 3D elements of salvaged burnt conifers.

In 2019 the UK had more wildfires than any year on record and these are getting more frequent – a stark reminder that with climate warming uncontrolled forest fires are now increasing globally.
