An artwork by nature itself or to be precise by Nature's most famous pollinators - bees, hardworking, golden helicopters.
The markings left by the process of honey and wax making is a meaningful, natural record of a life's work and cycle, sourced by curator Vasilisa Kameneva from Perm, city south of the Ural mountains in the Western part of Russia.
The role that these flying insects play in the ecosystem is enormous given that 1/3 of the human food supply depends on it and even more fascinating is the long lasting relationship humans have with ant's brothers and sisters. Collecting honey from wild bees dates to 15,000 years ago, when efforts to domesticate them are shown in Egyptian art around 4,500 years ago where jars of honey were found in the tombs of pharaohs such as Tutankhamun.
Black Horse by Zin V
Acrylic, Household, and Paper on Canvas
Size: 70 H x 90 W x 2 cm
A wild black horse, the symbol of uncontained freedom and power is concealed within a box, as a toy. Will it come ever out? Are these walls an illusion perceived by the animal? OR is it merely a figurine...
We love it. Plus what adds to the concept is the fact that Zin picks up household paint from the Recycling Center in Camden, London, since otherwise, leftover paint can be hazardous, as it contains materials that can leak into the ground, cause physical injury to sanitation workers, or contaminate septic tanks.
This image of a rising star actress Lauren McCrostie (Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) in Lana Siberie so brilliantly captured by Kristin Vicari is part of an editorial orchestrated by The Lissome.
