A TASTE OF HONEY
For the presence of humanity to be, the essence of life must exist and where humanity exists there must be the life of a woman. For, without a woman, life as we know it would not exist.
Today, sadly our planet is threatened by our very own human existence. Our wreck-less existence is causing parts of nature to become dangerously close to extinction. We can not continue to live lives of ignorance for our own beneficial consumption, as we simultaneously damage vital parts of the natural balance. This series of my work touches on the beauty of the woman figure, the existence of our sexuality, and the delicate balance of nature and life.
After hearing much about honey bee extinction, I started doing my own research, I realized how detrimental to our society this epidemic is and asked myself, what could I do to bring the most attention to it?
Honey Bees perform a task that is vital to the survival of agriculture, pollination. They are critical pollinators, they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. That’s only the start. In the last half-decade alone 30% of the national bee population has vanished and nearly a third of all bee colonies in the U.S. have died. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants, and so on up the food chain. With the state of Florida being the 3rd largest honey producer in the U.S., we have to make local and global awareness about this global epidemic.
The idea behind this series is to make everyone appreciate the beauty of nature, in the most raw-naked forms of humanity, and sexuality, combined with the rawest form of food the bees create that we all love…HONEY!
We must spread the word. We must learn to teach our peers, our families, and our world how to protect our most precious forms of life so that we can create a sustainable planet for generations to come.
