Shrine to Lost Pollinators

Artist’s Statement

Seven large paintings and a series of thirteen moon calendar paintings with cover piece illuminate the issues and questions about agriculture, species endangerment and the human dependency on insects, bats, birds and other creatures to pollinate our crops and balance our world. The underlying themes are love, loss and hope. Proceeding this show, Catie Faryl has explored this topic with exhibits titled “The Beekeeper’s Daughter” (which speaks to her own background and interest in the topic) ,“Observations from the Hive” (an irreverent study of the planet’s most confused social beings, humans), and “Global Warning: Mother Nature Says Clean Up Your Room” (title speaks for itself!)
