Bees Embed In Ava Roth’s Artwork Of Waxy Honeycomb

An artist named Ava Roth has stepped in to make a mark with her beautiful beehive art pieces. The Toronto-based artist has managed to break the limit of expectations by collaborating with master beekeeper Mylee Nordin and humming honey bees to add stars to her art platter. She comes with organic matter occupying the center of her framed art pieces.


It is not rare to find artists catching up with nature time and again. Their art pieces manage to get the enticing collaboration on in full shimmer. However, some artists stand out by letting nature play a larger role in their creations. They make use of natural processes to add stars to their art venture. An artist named Ava Roth adds her name to that board with her stunning art pieces. They shine at their best with bee hives abutting them.

The Toronto-based artist does not only appreciate but gets along with nature. She makes the best of the power of Mother Nature to set a mark in the art domain. For instance, she recently came up with her masterpieces that celebrated the fact to the full. Taking it to another level, she ended up collaborating with the master beekeeper Mylee Nordin. Not just that, she also gave an invitation to the high on energy bees. Making a note of their love for nectar, she initiated her spree in that way.


She set the ground right for her buzzing companions to work with organic elements. She ended up stitching leaves, porcupine quills, twigs, rose quartz, and other organic matter for goading them to work their magic out. To her delight, they accepted her offer. They obliged her by putting up beautiful hexagonal cells around her offering. The waxy structure went a long way in yielding an exceptional charm to her art pieces. They went ahead to complement her ideas and works. Not just that, their efforts teamed up with her efforts to take that part to another level.

Adding to that, she also came with inner and outer frames with woodworker Bernoel Dela Vega. That helped in working out a line between her and bees’ work (Langstroth hives). Not just that, it also went ahead to provide a background to her art pieces. For instance, in “Honeybee Collaboration: Tulip Tree Leaf and French Knots” (natural honeycomb, paper, encaustic medium, leaf, thread in Canadian Maple frame, 17.5 x 17.5 inches), one can see a leaf shimmering at the center of the frame. The waxy structures get around adding stars to that note.


“Honeybee Collaboration: Honeycomb and Twigs” (natural honeycomb, paper, encaustic medium, twigs, thread, gold seed beads in Canadian Pine frame, 17.5 x 17.5 inches) wins hearts with twigs stealing the show in a bee-hive vase in the frame. “Porcupine quills, Green and Gold” (encaustic, Japanese tissue, porcupine quills, seed beads and thread in an embroidery hoop, embedded in honeycomb, 17.5 x 17.5 inches)makes another addition to the enticing golden background.

Taking on her work, she said, “I recognize that Langstroth hives are not a natural habitat for bees, but neither are most of the spaces that humans find themselves occupying right now. Ultimately, this project is about exploring the ways in which humans collide with the natural environment today and finding ways to make making something beautiful from this specific time and place.”

Adding to that, she shared, “This means working in cities, in manufactured hives, in the midst of enormous environmental and political despair.” Taking on the frame part, she said, “Each piece requires some kind of border that separates my work from the bees’ work.”
