The Fire Inside

Explanation from the July print edition of Buzz Texas magazine:

"Burning House, a site-specific artwork/installation by SFA alums Clint Alexander and Emily Sloan Alexander, is located on the east side of Hwy. 59 about 40 miles south of Lufkin, between Seven Oaks and Legget. It is a permanent installation. The pair of artists added flames, amde of canva wrapped around fencing and then painted, to the 19th century shotgun house to create 'contemporary folk art, examining the socio-economic beginnings of East Texas and creating a new life of such relics through the creation brought through pseudo-destruction. It is also a form of activism, bringing art into under-represented areas,' Sloan Alexander said."
