In her most recent body of work artist jasna guy, with the help of entomologist Lincoln Best, explores our relationship with bees, the floral resources that pollinators require, and the complexity of our shared environment.
Guy presents a large-scale installation of black and white photographic images of closely observed native flora printed on paper and dipped in melted beeswax. These photographs, which cover the gallery’s walls from floor to ceiling, along with herbarium samples of local plants, and more than 100 exquisitely mounted entomological specimens, are products of guy’s intense inquiry and research-based practice. Guy’s work balances traditional museum practices with a moral consideration for native flora and fauna.
Jasna guy is a North Vancouver based artist with a Masters of Education in art education and a Bachelor’s degree in art history from the University of British Columbia.
