Forest Fire exhibits dynamic new paintings by Christine Ferrouge. In these monumental works, girls wander through a gloomy backdrop of damaged forest and dance with gestural marks, rough edges, and a united palette of charcoal, earth and fiery hues. The somewhat benign, unlikely young female heroes possess surprising strength, presence, and hope. Ferrouge is primarily a figurative painter, but in this new exhibition, companion abstract works are included alongside the forest fire scenes.
