Cathryn Miller and Monique Martin: The Absolute Way of Things

Cathryn Miller and Monique Martin: The Absolute Way of Things

Using bees as the subject, the works explore the fragile nature of existence, the interplay between humans and small creatures, and the communications patterns of our world. The large-scale prints explore the relationships within the hives and how those relationships mimic and contradict those in the human population. The cyclical nature of bee and human populations is represented through the sequential nature of the artwork.

Both the newly recognized loss of bee populations and the historical links between bees and humans are referenced in the artwork.

Monique Martin is a multi-disciplinary artist, and her work often uses historically significant symbols to comment on contemporary social issues. Her mentor, Cathryn Miller, is an award-winning, internationally recognized book artist.
