Melchior’s most recent paintings explore the “global plight of the humble bee” with particular interest in the effect of colony collapse syndrome. The works are utopian in their approach, presenting pollen and seed pods in a place where “...wild hives drip with waxy honey”.

Melchior's use of the ancient process of encaustic painting (combining beeswax, pigment and heat) allows for layering of vivid colour. There is an organic quality captured through this traditional process of making. The effect is luminous and the natural scent of beeswax is a feature of the work.
