‘Kīlauea’

Acrylic on Canvas – 42 x 59.5 cm

Kīlauea is one of the most active of the volcanoes that together form the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. Its most recent eruption began in December 2020 and ended in May 2021. Kīlauea means “spewing” in the Hawaiian language, referring to its frequent outpouring of lava. Rivers of molten lava frequently course downhill into the ocean below. This painting is incredibly textured creating a dramatic spectacle of steam and boiling sea water. The deep blue ocean contrasts with the neon flashes cascading into the spray. An extraordinary and striking phenomenon.
