The Cool Fire

Description : Our Aboriginal communities have been caring for and protecting their land, through fire management, for tens of thousands of years. They believe in a reciprocal relationship, and that if we take care of the land, it will take care of us, physically and spiritually.

I read a very interesting article by Mr Glen Kelly, about the Aboriginal community’s vast knowledge about using fire as one of the main tools in caring for our country. Mr Kelly is a member of the Nyungar Community, the traditional owners of south-west of Western Australia. In his article, ‘Karla Wongi Fire Talk’, a Nyungar perspective on forest burning’ Mr Kelly talks about ‘Cool Fires’, burns of lower intensity, the most common use of fire for land management. This method doesn’t damage upper layers of the forest and if performed correctly, provides rich food and diverse re-growth.

I wanted to pay tribute to Mr Kelly, his very interesting article, the Nyungar people and all our Aboriginal communities by painting a Cool Fire.

Carin is a visual artist, born and raised in England, now living in Melbourne Australia.  She is most widely known for her bold dynamic watercolours of our natural world. She also works with graphite and pastels and writes poetry.

Her work has been licensed for Christmas cards and has attracted international awards.  She has a strong commissions-following, exhibits regularly and sells internationally.

Her paintings are as diverse in style and subject as nature itself.  Realistic, impressionist or abstract, they communicate our world through watercolour – ranging from the land, sky, sea, animals and insects to people and communities.  

Carin raises community awareness of important subjects through her art.  She says “Art can be a powerful means of communication like no other”.  To date, sales of her paintings have raised $14,000 to support programs for refugees and people seeking asylum and victims and survivors of domestic violence.  Carin has also raised awareness of marginalised Australian Indigenous communities and traditional land management practices through her paintings.
