out of the fire....

Henrique Oliveira. Dead Fire (detail). Burned plywood. 2012

Out of the fire the wood escapes, scorched but not consumed. Coiling and twisting like a nest of massive snakes, of blind basilisks. Rejecting its fate. Rebellious.

Henrique Oliveira. Dead Fire.

Henrique Oliveira. Dead Fire (detail).

Out of the fire, water.

Kate MccGwire. Slick. Mixed media with magpie feathers. 2010
