Don’t Bee Fooled is a graffiti botanical in the Overgrowth Collection where street art ephemera, botanicals, bees and other garden creatures “grow” over a classic image—signaling the “death” to outdated modalities and social norms. Don’t Bee Fooled was created in response to the 2022 Supreme Court Decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. A close look will reveal graffiti elements infringing on a women’s right to make choices about her body. Messages like “It’s Okay Not to be Okay” and “Women Unite” signify solidarity. The great black wasps off to the left on a tall bulbus stem signify the patriarchy and it’s continued domination over women’s issues. The humming bird seeking nectar speaks to women’s hunger to have complete control over their lives and bodies. Reinterpreted foundational portrait done by American artist Keynon Cox (1856-1919) Subject unknown. 18th Century.
