Bees. December 2020. Lauren Allred
My artwork currently is related to cultural issue that are not mainstream issues. Bringing focus to issues that the average person may not have considered.
For this series of works my practice is using Sculpture, ranging from recycled materials to woodwork and plaster. Within this series I formed a range of 2D drawings that formed into a 3D works. I explored abstraction and symbolism for my works, enabling me to show messages to a viewing audience in subtle ways.
I was inspired from the habitation confinement humans put upon bees that result in diseases for the creature. By forming a series of work inspired by this to enlighten people on the repercussions of bee farms.
This project is still ongoing and I am planning to explore these concepts further within my practice.
