Taharti fiery remains

British Columbia’s 2017 raging wildfires swept through our Taharti homestead and surrounding areas. The erratic and pervasive devastation is drawn across the land in the ashen traces of forest, fields, and six decade old snake fences that once delineated our wilderness ranch.

I photographed our homestead following the 2017 fires and collected artifacts which were used in creating the mixed media works: Traces I and Traces II.
