In her one-woman commitment to change, Susan Curington melds her passion for painting with passion for the environment in this super-sized exhibit. In 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 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 compassion, connection and concern.
