Eruption! Volcano fiery fanged explosion
wind fire, sharpened light.
Centrifugal burning core of your retina
synathesia of senses,
abrasive clash clash of elements
volcanic transformation spews forth fire
O dangerous beauty
captured juxtaposition of art and nature
cleansed and transmuted radiance
molten stalagmite spikes of life and death
Inspired by Julian Bell’s painting ‘Darvaza’ of a flaming gas crater in Turkmenistan
Dreams of Here exhibition Feb- June 2012
