You have heard of the old saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure" ? Well, some of the members of F.I.R.E. Arts Studio and Gallery decided to make a collaborative piece to submit to the upcoming "Rejuvenate" show.
With the theme of Rejuvenation on mind they decided they would like to use "affordable" supplies and get creative to bring them back to life and created a piece called Bee Centered In The Circle Of Life.
Our lives follow the cycles and rhythms just as in Nature and we agreed that being centered as we grow through the phases in this natural circle allows for all of life to be rejuvenated in the process. We discussed the tree of life, hence the idea of the Bee of Life and they symbolic connection of each that represents the stages of growth in life. With the honeycomb base it was only natural to follow bees and insects life stages.
We started with A Pile Of Trash- waste, death, Free Supplies waiting new life: Rejuvenation:
We then took stock of what items we had, grabbed a piece of paper and each member drew their vision of what could be created. Each member then "presented" their visions and drawing explaining what they felt would be the direction of the piece. An overall combination of each member's created vision was then combined to create an agreed on Piece of Art. The next step was preparing the items to be used and deciding how to put the structure base foundation together.
From there the next several hours were spent creating the add ons to complete the piece
And there you have a collaborative project of Trashy Art.
We hope this inspires you to consider that the elements of Art (natural,educational,community,creativity,expressive,fun,reflective the our multi-dimensional lives ever available) doesn't have to be expensive to be beautiful!
Create and Rejuvenate
Hope to see you at the reception!
