Amazonia Burning Series - Drawings

These works were started when a satellite showed 10,000 fires burning in the Amazon rainforest.  They are a tribute to Chico Mendes, a rubber tapper who was assassinated in 1988, and Margaret Mee, a botanical artist who moved to Brazil to document the vanishing flora in the rainforest.  She died in a taxi accident in London three weeks prior to the death of Chico Mendez.
