Ava Roth is a mixed-media artist based in Toronto. Like many artists, Ava likes to collaborate — but she’s got more collaborators than most. She works with honeybees. Here’s more from Art the Science:
This collection of work is the result of a collaboration with thousands of local honeybees. Each piece begins in my studio with the creation of a mixed-media collage and then moves into a hive for honeybees to embed in comb.
I started working directly with bees about three years ago, after working as an encaustic artist for several years. Being immersed in wax gave me tremendous appreciation for it as a medium, and it was not long before I began to learn more about bees themselves. The more I learned, the more deeply I became involved.
