As Sweet As Honey, 2011, mixed media with encaustic on panel, 36 x 36 inches.
This piece was made for Pollination: Beyond the Garden, a show curated by Gregory Wright in 2012 for the Brush Gallery in Lowell, Mass. Subsequently, the show was featured at Art Current Gallery in Provincetown during the 2012 Encaustic Conference. My constructed painting contains handwritten, printed, and stamped information about bees and honey along with dominoes and represents the vital work of bees in pollinating flowers. I also meant it to allude to the way people cross-pollinate in civilization. As Sweet As Honey is currently available at Arden Gallery in Boston. --N.N.
