They showed their work to their local community early this week.
Jane Kellahan and Max Hall showcased their paintings at the Wanaka Fine Art Gallery.
The top was full of life, with bees, a beehive, cherry blossom, golden pollen and water.
In the centre, a human figure starts to weaken, while at the bottom, life deteriorated fast.
The bees are falling to their death, the leaves have dried, as well as the flower petals, leaving a pile of dead, decaying bees.
''Albert Einstein once said 'If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years to live','' Ms Kellahan said.
There would be a pile of real dead bees underneath when the painting was displayed at Chelsea Old Town Hall at the end of May, she said.
Mr Hall's entry into the London Biennale came after one of his recent works sold in London.
His painting, Mocking Birds is an ''audacious and controversial statement piece'', designed to deride two ideals that are prominent in the art world - that good art must be expensive and that famous artists deserve less judgement because of their status.
Mr Hall heads to Europe this week for a series of art courses. He hopes to forge a career as an artist.
Ms Kellahan is one of 50 artists who will exhibit their work at a group show at Gagliardi Gallery in London later this year.
