September 9, 2020 was Northern California’s infamous “Orange Day,” when wildfire smoke choked the Bay Area, turning the skies into a doomsday scenario. This specific date, compounded with the early months of the pandemic and other tragic national and personal events, spurred on this body of work.

Fire Season employs the complementary/contrasting colors of orange and blue for both tension and relief,  as well as solitary figures and boxed forms to embody climate crisis, public health crisis, and personal crisis.
