THE BEYONDNESS OF BEES | Susan Brisco


A Creative Black Country funded project

Microscope drawing and stitch studies of Bees

Science meets art to look beyond the surface to see the powerful aesthetics of the microscopic world of bees. Observe the compound eye, or the hairs that carry pollen grains or the translucent, architectural detail of the wings. Explore these unseen elements through the microscope eye-piece and make new images with an intriguing abstract aesthetic through drawing and stitch. The art pieces will be combined for an exhibition which will involve a wider audience in the unexpected use of multi-media art and the wonder of bees.

Private View: Wednesday 10th of April, 6pm - 8pm.  at Eagle Works Art Gallery - (artists’ talk 7pm).  Exhibition runs 11th -18th April 11-3 pm by appointment. Just ring 07724549922 to arrange – the artist will be delighted to show you round the art works.
