18” x 24” Oil on Canvas, Framed: 19” x 25” x 2” Diamonds form deep within the earth under intense heat and pressure that cause carbon atoms to crystallize. This is the same environment and conditions that lamproite and kimberlite (commonly known as magma) form. When magma moves towards the earth’s surface, it brings those diamonds with it. Diamonds and lava are sisters, born of the same mother. The largest diamond in the world was unearthed in Botswana in 2013. It was mined from a 150 pound ball of Kimberlite or cooled magma. Not yet cut, it is 1109 carats and is valued at 70 million USD. Its Setswani name is, “Lasedi La Rona” which translates to “Our Light.” It truly is a diamond in the rough; a perfect example of light and beauty born from darkness and fire. With the "Ember" body of work, I explore fire in many forms: The duality of the destructive and restorative power of a wildfire; The intimate gathering around a bonfire that invites introspection and connection; The intense refining process of gold; Beauty and creation being born of fire as in diamonds and lava flow. Through this series, fire has become my personal emblem of transcendence. Please reference the "Ember" collection for a full description of this series.
