Winter Forest Burning is an abstract representation of the environmental tragedy of increased forest fires. Their brilliant flames and dark smoke contrast with the purity of a new snowfall.

Lynne Taetzsch’s Winter Forest Burning is an unusual and daring evocation of winter that brings me back to the four years of freezing, beautiful, and breathtaking winters I spent in upstate New York (only thirty minutes from where the artist is based!). Winter often seems monotone and defined by white snow, grey skies, barren trees, an absence of nature's many hues, swallowed up by the winter snow. I cannot say I love winter in good conscience, but I came to respect it and become awed by it. There is a lot more to winter than a lifeless sea of white. Not only are the blankets and flurries of snow beautiful, but the colors that would have been otherwise shallowed by the kaleidoscopic hues of summer are highlighted and made all the brighter against the tonal neutrality of winter.
