Work for the exhibition “100 years of women’s suffrage in the Netherlands”
Curator Annette Reiff, at “Kunstdagen Wittem”
Colmena is the portrait of the woman, independent, free, in which the feminine is a valuable quality. The beehive is the nest of a colony of bees. They live in an organized, powerful and social system. The honey they produce is a sweet and viscous energetic liquid. Between the hairs of the portrait is a beehive. She is a beehive woman. Her eye is the queen bee.
