Painter In 2014 l drove through the mountain areas of country Victoria to Mansfield, Woods Point over the top of the mountain and down to Marysville and onto Lake Mountain. As l drove up to the summit of Lake Mountain l was stuck by great sadness at the sight that faced me. The destruction of the forest that had been destroyed by ‘Black Saturday’ the fires that had gone through the area of Saturday 7 February 2009. What came to me was, that in life we experience many of the same things, lost, grief and birth. The colours of the Black, White and shades of Grey with the rebirth of the new growth of colour, all left a strong presents on me and helped me create this group of work. Bern Barry - 2017
