Messages left behind by the fire.

The fire was foreshadowed by this painting I was working on at the time. I painted this dry-brushed black frame around it, which ended up resembling the window that burned in the fire, just a few weeks later. It remains a work in progress (photo transfers, oil paint & acrylic paint on hardboard)

The Fire

This fire in my apartment three years prior to the first performance of INTREPID opened my eyes to exploring charcoal as a tool and as a residual of fire. It was after this that I began using charcoal in my work to assist in the healing of trans-generational trauma. Charcoal not only carries with it the combustive, alchemical energy of fire, but it also serves as a ritual tool and purifier. (See INTREPID here: https://phyliciaghee.carbonmade.com/projects/7054490)

This experience changed the trajectory of my life.
