They Remain- Sculpture Series

The art for They Remain  is inspired by the shapes, haunting skeletons and forest architecture left from fires and harsh weather conditions in woodlands. Forests make something out of what’s left—ruined and ravaged. The burnt and damaged forests give way to life that manifests all stages of development—slowly replenishing the the surroundings. Forest environs shed themselves with the seasons passing on and falling back into the land—creating seeds of life—life and hope. Since the beginning of the 2016 my studio has been filled with all stages putting together this body of work. Twenty steel based sculptures in honor of the Prescott Granite Mountain Hotshots—“an elite crew of U.S. wildfire firefighters based in Prescott, Arizona”. On June 30, 2013—19 of 20 members of the Hotshots group lost their lives in the Yarnell Hill Fire—Yarnell, Arizona. This was just after the hotshots had assisted in containing the Doce Fire in the Granite Mountain Wilderness Area. Each artwork presented here is listed in my Gallery section with several views. The men of the Granite Mountain Hotshots were involved again and again to save forests and their surroundings from destruction. They served and protected many in their short time on earth (their average age was 27). When the work from my “They Remain” series is completed and available—a percentage of sales will be donated to Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters  dedicated to assist families of the wildland firefighters killed in the line of duty. My art for this series honors the fallen 19 and the sole survivor.
