Fire is ever-present in the Australian environment and as the mid-summer sun starts scorching the land, it weighs heavily upon the Australian psyche. Within bushland, fire has a dual identity as both restorative and destructive. It can destroy life and livelihoods, as much as it can create the conditions for new life to emerge. Monique Tippett: Burnt is a response to the duality of fire. Fire is wielded by Tippett as a creative force. It is used for artworks that reside somewhere between sculpture and painting, as three-dimensional wall works. Burnt brings together a selection of large and small, new and old works, that glow from gold to red and from the deepest darkest charred wood to snowy ash.
