Art show review

George Mason University MFA student Elsabé J. Dixon is currently being featured at the SOA Fine Art Gallery in Fairfax, VA. Her installation, “We Will Not Play Nature To Your Culture”, features striking organic forms that were inspired by her three years working with live organisms as a medium. Most prominently featured are references to silkworms and bees. The show runs through March twenty-fifth. More info can be found here.

I had to stop and see it, so here are some photos:

    I would like to see this cool installation. What if she use different colors, not just all yellow beehives.

    It was a pretty interesting installation. What would be the point of using different colors? I feel yellow is the only color that needs to be used here, but I’m curious to see what colors you were thinking and why? The current show at the SOA gallery is worth checking out, too.
