Bee No More was created for the SAQA Oceania Exhibit “Connections”, which is touring Australia and New Zealand during 2019 and 2020.
Highlighting the plight of our Honey Bees has been one of the themes in my recent work.
Continued use of pesticides and herbicides have seen a decline in this essential insect.
The quilt is created with hand dyed and painted fabrics and lots of tulle and organza to create the soft effect. Dying flowers at the top highlight the bees plight.
Here are some progress photos as I worked on the quilt. As you can see the overlays of tulle and net enhanced the painted background.
