MSU BILLINGS NEWS—Student artistDacia Racine is hosting an independent Senior Capstone exhibition, Amalgamation, Nov. 8 through Nov. 16, 2018 at Montana State University Billings in the outer gallery of the Liberal Arts Building. An artist reception is slated for Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. that is free and open to the public. Campus parking is free after 5:00 p.m.


Amalgamation investigates the correlation between honeybee colonies and human civilization through anthropomorphic illustrations, allegorical associations, as well as abjective motifs. The artwork divulges in rectifying egalitarian principles amongst mankind as a unified ensemble, thus the metaphorical relationship between honeybees’ systematic impartiality. The artist utilizes an immersive installation of large-scale figurative drawings that comingle with different members of the honeybee hive in a manner which consolidates mankind to these insect species’ emblematic equity.
