Aganetha Dyck is a Canada based artist who creates art out of honeycomb. For more than twenty years Dyck has been working with honeybees to make her own unique style of art using specially designed apiaries that allow her to place a foreign object inside the hive without disturbing the bees’ natural everyday activity. The result is a delicate honeycomb sculpture. Dyck uses such man made objects as porcelain figurines, shoes, dolls and sports equipment. The entire process can take several weeks or months even. While Dyck has been carrying on her relationship with bees for more than two decades, more recently her artwork has garnered worldwide recognition and attention due to the onslaught of colony collapse disorder. Dyck’s artwork with its rather erie webbing of delicately woven yet remarkably strong honeycomb now takes on a whole new meaning from its first inception, bringing new attention to the importance and beauty of bees to our lives. The honeycomb sculptures have been called exquisite, beautiful, humorous, haunting and even disturbing. One thing is for certain, Dyck’s unique artwork created through the utilization of bees and their hive building skills can’t help but draw attention to how truly remarkable bees are.
