  • Dewaxing a beehive and making painting, wax-painting.
    It’s a matter of diluting the wax construction in order to construct a painting. The apiarist-painter that is to say the apipainter dressed in the protective veil looks through the frame of the hive to pick out a piece of landscape just as naturalist painters do to limit the landscape scope of the canvas.

    The accumulation of wings that had been make you feel the noise and the air moving and also the smell of the wax-painting of the waxing-dewaxing.
    And transform the mechanical work of a collective consciousness into a random gesture of chance.
