In “Fire,” we see Bobkin returning to his distinctive signature: the spiritual and the shamanistic. We see indigenous figures from native cultures warming themselves by the flame, as if brought to life from a cave painting. The dark shades contrast with the elusive light of the flame. The fire also serves as a unifying factor: from gathering around a campfire to the romance of staring at a crackling fireplace. As humans, we are the only ones who – believe – to have succeeded in controlling fire. To deal with it and shape it, and to convert the powerful energy it generates into something beautiful.
