Fire, blackness, soot and sadness, these are the dominant elements in this impressive painting by Olivier. This is not the ultimate creation of a talented landscape artist such as Olivier, who amazes us by conveying with his brush the colorful idyll of nature. This is a painting expressing the depth of emotion and sorrow, which each of us experiences in our less optimistic days. Only a talented artist is able to both depict and fascinate the viewer through the use of a limited range of colors which are not at all joyful.
This painting was dedicated by Olivier, a seeker of nature and the wonders of creation, to the great fire that devastated Israel in 2010 on Mount Carmel, that engulfed in its path both trees and human life.
