“Roundup® Your Young” 2018
Assemblage 60”H x 30W x 23D
Inspired by the ancient bee goddess found engraved on onyx, Knossos Crete, c. 1500 BC — this assemblage attempts to raise awareness on the harmful effects herbicides have on nature and ourselves. Glyphosate (found in Roundup®) is widely used in agriculture and gardens. The effects it is having on bees especially the honeybee is critical and the link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, can no longer be ignored. “Roundup® Your Young” is a call to arms on behalf of the bee and ourselves. Monsanto, now owned by Bayer, mass produce these harmful chemicals and market them with little warning. Tons are sprayed on our agriculture annually and consumers in search for that lush green lawn have aisles of herbicides displayed prominently in every Lowes and Home depot across the country.
