Have you ever observed the intricate workings of a beehive? It serves as a captivating metaphor for how artists, much like bees, can engage in group dynamics to inspire, influence, and support one another without resorting to imitation.
Imagine yourself as a member of The Enso Circle, which is akin to a creative beehive. Each artist possesses a unique style and perspective, analogous to the varied roles of worker bees. However, the real beauty emerges when we interact, exchange ideas, and collaborate. Here's how this synergy unfolds:
In summary, Resident artists can collaborate effectively without sacrificing their individuality. Within the confines of a hive, bees remain distinct, yet collectively create something extraordinary. In The Enso Circle, we draw inspiration from our surroundings, support one another, and evolve as artists, much like our industrious bee counterparts. Together, we can produce artistic honey – our latest catalog is the sweet proof!
There is a link to the Catalog below these images. The pictures show how cross-pollination happens in The Enso Circle. Lyn created an encaustic design called "Irish Paper" while she and Michelle were teaching in Ireland this past summer. Vanessa, a Continuing Resident, used the idea of square sections in her altar composition to the bees.
