Broken Bombus Terrestris
2015. h:15.8cms x w:15.8cms (unframed).
The bee (a buff-tailed bumble bee: ‘bombus terrestris’) is gently turned this way and that and never falls. Walking to school a group of children rescued this dying bumble bee and were worried about what to do with it so I suggested I could put in a drawing: all concerns were soothed. Unfortunately it died soon afterwards and gradually took on this contorted position which inspired the composition.
