Wanderlust is an international group exhibition inspired by travel, far-away places, adventurous experiences and fascinating destinations. Participating artists were given identical postcards and asked to create a unique piece for the show inspired by the theme “wanderlust”. Travel via boat, plane, foot, and yes, even jellyfish to your favorite destination in this eclectic and imaginative exhibition!
Syd Bee is a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in 2013. She lives and works in Seattle, where she can be found painting while surrounded by a library of fairy tales, comic books, collectable oddities, and a Persian cat. Syd Bee’s interest in folklore, femininity, youth, and the bizarre fuel her passion to create work which captures figures in a dreamy moment. She uses softness in application and color to suggest sweetness in spite of a creeping despondence. Bee’s figures appear melancholy and at odds with unseen forces. Through her explorations, perhaps one day these characters may overcome their circumstances.
