Floral Drawing with Bees at 5 Norlington Road

As part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail – I have had the pleasure of starting a large drawing inside a freshly wallpapered house.  The piece is an organic development – mainly unplanned and consisting largely of floral forms.  The drawing is due to be completed next weekend and will be open for public viewing on Sunday the 10th of July where I will be continuing the work and throughout the next week until Sunday the 17th July.  Here are a few images of the work completed so far.

The work will be the starting point of a new series of pieces considering the impact of bees on the environment, their sophisticated methods of communication and navigation, concerns about their dwindling numbers and the catastrophic effects on the planet should they disappear completely.

By chance today I met a beekeeper who has invited me to don a beekeepers suit and gain some first hand experience visiting the hive – looking forward to recording some sound and video to influence the work
