Artist Statement: This piece, like a lot of my artwork, is inspired by history. The figures are a pair of medieval beekeepers, tending to their bees, which I juxtaposed with a contrasting background. The background functions as a past-present comparison, which is why I’ve illustrated the foreground as overgrown and humming with life, while the background is more sweeping, flat, and industrial, like modern farmland.
