These Tiny Helpers Artist: Dee Barsy

For this solo exhibition, Dee has transformed the gallery space into an immersive mural that features her unique visual language. This language is distinguished by her iconic blue background, her bright and contrasting colour palette, and her rhythmic lines and shapes. For this site-specific artwork, Dee has created abstract representations of various arachnids and insects that are native to the Manitoba area. These species include the Monarch Butterfly, the Red-Belted Bumblebee, the Field Cricket, the Common Green Darner Dragonfly, the Nine-Spotted Ladybug, the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth, the Jewel Spider, the Water Scorpion, and the Giant Water Bug.

These tiny helpers play an essential role in the rhythms of the natural environment. For example: some insect species make contributions to the food system as natural prey for predatory amphibians and fish. Some predatory insect species regulate the populations of other insect species and some insect species assist with the decomposition cycle and the creation of fertile soil.
