Acrylic and Gold Leaf on Canvas – 42 x 59.5 cm
On 22 May 2021, Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo began erupting. It is part of the Virunga volcanic chain and is infamous for its extremely fluid lava that runs as water when the lava lake drains. The dark background of the canvas contrasts with flashes of neon orange and cadmium yellow, signifying dark, deadly terror, contrasting with the mesmerising pyrotechnic outbursts of liquid magma. Bold layers of dense paint create gushing movement which is specked with gold flakes and ferocious, intuitive wild marks*.

La Soufrière – Original Painting
*The lava flow destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses and tragically 32 lives were lost. Proceeds from this painting will be donated to the Virunga Foundation. Virunga supplies more than 70% of Goma’s power, not only electrifying tens of thousands of homes and businesses but also enabling critical water stations on Lake Kivu to function for over a million people. With the loss of power to these pumping stations, this essential and life preserving service has been entirely disrupted.
