My practice exists on the fringes of social practice, environmental arts, and identity affirmation as I approach my creative practice and research through the perspective of a practicing Black woman beekeeper. This practice and this research serve as evidence to combat the stereotype that Black people are disinterested in their environment. I want the audience to observe/receive my work as a merge between environmental art and abstract expressionism. I anticipate my audience to observe my use of textures and color schemes within my paintings; and develop a visual dialogue between my archival material and photos. I view this opportunity as one aspect of presenting my work. There’s a dual aspect to my practice that requires both gallery exhibition and in the field engagement with my hives as well as the people I’m hoping to connect with this practice. Gallery exhibition is one vital aspect of my practice, however, my goal is to expand this environmental practice beyond honeybees into developing native bee habitats and other sustainable land based art practices. This starting point provides an initial narrative to a practice that looks to contribute and amplify the realm of Black environmental arts.
