Ten landscapes, rich in color, painted with bees’ wax. The gesture is almost casual; drops and strokes of thick color create a complex surface, dense – also with emotion.

These images do not represent natural phenomena. The goal isn’t to construct a painting of something, but to allow something to emerge from the material itself. In this way its existence owes more to discovery than construction.
