A humming vibration fills the air as black and gold honeybees dart towards ripe blossoms filled with pollen and nectar. Pollination occurs as a result of the bee dance, and the plant growth cycle continues – as long as bees are healthy and thrive.
In her one-woman commitment to change, Susan Curington melds her passion for painting with passion for the environment in this super-size exhibit. Creating “As The Bee Sees: A Pollinator’s Perspective” the artist focuses on food crops most vulnerable to failure in the current state of bee decline. These large scale paintings magnify food plant flowers as if from a bee’s view as it approaches the plant to pollinate.
The large scale painting format invites the viewer to assume the perspective of a bee. Magnificent visual imagery, vibrant color and magnified scale combine to ignite a visceral reaction in the viewer, eliciting connection, concern and compassion.
Every human being should show the greatest interest in beekeeping, because our lives depend on it. ~Rudolf Steiner
"Your simple, daily acts of service may not seem like much in and of themselves, but when considered collectively they become just like the one-twelfth teaspoon of honey contributed by a single bee to the hive." ~ M Russel Ballard
After the shows, any unsold paintings will be donated along with rights to the digital images to non-profits such as Oregon Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Libraries and the Xerces Society.
