In Search of Fire is a new body of work incorporating painting, drawing, and video.  This project explores stock and mediated images of house fires, and how their circulation online creates new and unexpected narratives.  Of particular interest are images found on meme-generator websites or other media sharing platforms that provide blanket representations of disaster.  The images may begin as documents of real life events, but are later appropriated into different contexts that blur the line between a perceived and constructed reality.
