Collaboratively we have looked at the longevity of Basa's work and have hovered and honed in on the subtle yet ever present honey bee. This gem of an insect has been a trajectory in flight in her work through her use of honeycomb, bee's wax in works such as craft works, large scale rugs, public works to her current encaustic paintings. Join us in the hunt with your eye and your belly for the honey bee from plate to plate, and throughout Basa's work.
