Leslie Hossack


Acrylic sculpture
15.25 x 5 x 5 in.

“Wildfire” is from a suite of sculptures entitled “Earth, Air, Fire and Water.” This collection is part of Leslie Hossack’s latest series INFERNO.

 Like her previous work, INFERNO is research based. Here Hossack exposes objectively measurable aspects of climate changes such as melting Arctic ice, rising sea levels, unprecedented wildfires, hazardous air quality and scorching temperatures.

 INFERNO is data driven. Although the works are abstract, they are accurate representations of scientific records. 

“Wildfire” is fabricated from 25 separate pieces, each of a different height. These represent the area burned by wildfires in Canada during the worst 25 years of the last 40. The highest bar represents 2023, when wildfires burned more than double the area of any year since 1983.
