2019 / Alien Beauty
What would the world be like without these small but complicated miracles?
The Bee in this artwork is called an Orchid Bee and is one of the living jewels of the rainforest.
They are the only creatures, apart from humans, known to devote so much time to blend fragrances into perfumes!
The importance of the perfumes for the bees still have to be discovered by scientists, but it's presumed to be part of their courtship.
They are critical for pollinating rare Orchid species, because over time, the two have evolved together,
making the Orchid Bees and Orchids dependent on each other for survival.
Studies have shown;
76% reduction in flying insects.
45% reduction in invertebrate insects.
In this series we like to show a glimpse of the beauty of insects in a different way by fusing it with more familiar beauty, photographed(side profile) and digitally drawn(face frontal).
Insects inhabited the earth even before the dinosaurs. They were the first to master airspace and specialized in the most diverse tasks such as pollinating plants and clearing up dead matter, they learned to live in balance with their world.
We would like to bring these wonders to the attention so that they too will be more appreciated and we as humanity will start to value their work and presence differently.
It would be a shame if we were the cause of their downfall and, indirectly, our own.
How can we protect our animals if we eliminate the basis on which we all live directly or indirectly?
