Spruce Smoke

SOLD – Museum

Fire is the most important factor influencing the ecology of the northern Boreal Forest.  Wildfires remove the duff and soil layers that insulate permafrost, and as the permafrost melts it releases methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This quilt depicts a flashback of burning spruce trees inset into bare ground and dead trees smoldering after a fire.
