“American Fire” explores man’s relationship with fire and technology, how it shaped our biology and how we use it to shape the world around us. The exhibition features work by Lucas Simmons, an Oklahoma artist who works with oil paints and charcoal.

Like many contemporary figurative artists, Lucas Simmons is interested in narratives that explore the relationships between man, nature and technology. This current body of work serves as a reflection of rural America in the context of the proposed Anthropocene. Simmons’ work explores themes relating to local industry, ecology, religion and mythology.
