Bee Works #ArtTuesday

via Art the Science

My purpose in creating these artworks is to call for much-needed changes to the way that Canada (and the world) condones the use of systemic pesticides. Beekeepers connect with this message instantly – it is why they have been sending me their own dead bees to help continue this work. People with less direct experience with bees have expressed surprise at the great numbers of bees in each hive, and have reported feeling disorientation and sadness beyond what they expected to feel. This visceral human reaction is exactly why I chose to make Bee Works – it makes the bee crisis relatable to everyone and important to people who had not yet realized it is such a problem.

I couldn’t be more proud that this work has raised awareness about the global decline. It also helps me deal with the loss of my own hives to know that something lasting has been created from them. I will continue to advocate for humanistic and conservation issues through my art.
