Monique Martin: Continuous

Monique Martin:  Continuous 

March 31 - April 18

 

Continuous is a multi-sensory art installation by Monique Martin  augmented by the scent of beeswax and the sound of buzzing bees that  comments on the steady decline in honeybee populations and the  devastating effects of their collapsed colonies. Through  ceiling-suspended panels and a participatory hive wall, the artist  creates an interactive experience where visitors are immersed in a  “live” beehive.


Martin seeks to illustrate the delicate nature of what happens in a  hive as it relates to the interactions of humans: The more we are  involved, the more the bees suffer.


A multi-disciplinary artist  and art educator, Monique has exhibited her printmaking, paintings,  sculptures, installations and book works in solo, invited and juried  group exhibitions in eight countries. Her works are held in more than  twenty-five public and private collections internationally.
