Susan Crile featured in Art in America

“Susan Crile was among the Western artists who rushed to region to document the aftermath of the war firsthand. Her Field of Fire (1991) depicts oil wells in Kuwait that had been set on fire by retreating Iraqis. Crile saw the apocalyptic landscape in July 1991 on a visit facilitated by Bechtel, an American company hired to extinguish the fires.”
