'honey gatherers of the mind'
So I missed this incredible show highly touted by my dear friend Sharon. This gorgeous and creepy display that begs an intimate view. Look closer...a spin on trompe l'oeil by Jennifer Angus. By use of the familiar, pattern papering a wall, she has meticulously pinned an array of bees and beetles and butterflies, oh my! Challenging myth, history and the legend of bugs' bad rap, she creates beauty. Breathtaking prints just slightly raised from the wall, a harmonious blend of man and nature.
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
