BEEFORE THE END, LONDON BIENNALE 2019

At the top of the painting, it is full of life. Bees, a beehive, cherry blossom, gold droplets of pollen and water. In the centre, a human figure starts to weaken. As our eyes move down, life is  deteriorating fast. Parts of the paint are even flaking off, revealing the underneath surface and  emphasizing that is everything is falling apart.  The figures backside holds a secret message, "If we cant be arsed making massive change, we will go down". The painting is crying because it is dying. 

The bees are falling to their death, the leaves have dried, as too are the flower petals. All that is left is a pile of dead, decaying bees. Once the painting is hung on the white wall at Chelsea Old Town Hall on London's Kings Road, underneath the painting you will see a pile of real bees that died by drowning in Lake Wanaka. https://www.stuff.co.nz/domini...
