A bee can recognize an individual human face.
So a bee can recognize you, but can you recognize a bee?
In 2013, as a response the honeybee crisis and following the shared consciousness theme, Gold painted a series of bee portraits. Enlarging and painting a group of macro images allows the observer a rare opportunity to stare into a face that is rarely seen but so critical to our environment and human economy.

The Bees were exhibited at Toronto Evergreen Brickworks in 2015.
