During 2017, I am working towards creating pieces for FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things
And this was my starting point:
''Did you know that there are around 250 different bees in Britain which include 24 species of bumblebees, 225 solitary bees and just one honeybee?
Did you also know that many are in decline; how will we survive without them….we wouldn’t?
The focus of Fifty BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things is to illustrate how diverse our bee population is, how endangered it is and how pivotal they all are to our ecosystem.
I am creating 50 small, almost life-size bee pieces in wool and another 50 artists, makers, writers etc.are producing an artpiece in response to the habitat, linked wildlife, ecology, flight, sound, predators, (or whatever they choose) of 1 specific British bee; they will use media of their choice.''
The exhibition will take place this July at ACEarts in Somerset from 1st – 22nd July 2017 with a variety of events taking place throughout.
