Art by Kristin Flynn. Kristin lives and has a studio in the Hudson Valley -not far from the Seed Library! She finds inspiration and metaphor for her work in the surrounding woods and fields, creating narratives with plants, bones, birds and landscapes.
From the Artist: "The painting for Sage began as I begin many pieces, by researching and collecting forms. I wanted to create a wild, tangled space filled with the smell of sage. I want the bog to feel faintly remembered with the sage blooming and fading in a state of growth and passing. Using a large piece of gessoed paper, I wipe loose graphite powder to create and find composition. After I have established the space and forms, I paint in color with ink and gesso. I was so excited to design a seed packet as my work has involved plants for years. I love the mission of the Seed Library and the work they are doing."
Medium: graphite, ink, gesso/paper
