  • About this painting: In the monochromatic tableau titled "Icarus as a Bee," the stark contrast of black and white captures a poignant narrative. At the center, a naked, glowing bulb dangles ominously, casting a harsh light on the scene below. Positioned beneath the bulb lies a lifeless bee, its delicate wings spread in a final, futile attempt at flight. The fragility of life is encapsulated in this somber moment, as the bee's existence is abruptly halted.

    The wing, detached and suspended, adheres to the burning, yet, cold surface of the bulb—a metaphor for aspirations reaching too close to the unforgiving reality. The dead bee symbolizes the inevitable consequences of daring pursuits, akin to Icarus flying too close to the sun in Greek mythology. The bulb, once a source of illumination, now becomes a harsh witness to the bee's demise.

    "Icarus as a Bee" encapsulates themes of ambition, mortality, and the consequences of pushing boundaries. The simplicity of the black and white palette intensifies the emotional impact, creating a powerful and thought-provoking visual exploration of the delicate balance between aspiration and vulnerability.
