Flower Garden by Jessica Ginsberg
This work mixes common found objects to spur an emotion
in the viewer. In Flower Garden the intent was to assemble packets of
seeds into a book that would create a sense of nostalgia or even just
a longing for spring.
Plant Dreams by Ann Marie Kennedy
Inspired by the artist's involvement with growing and harvesting
flax, Plant Dreams is a meditation on the cycles of growth, decay,
and regeneration. The artist's book evolved from her installation titled
Plant/Harvest, at Women's Studio
Workshop during the fall of 1998. Squares of flax paper were imbedded
with seeds and drawn on with walnut ink as they sprouted. The squares
dried during the exhibition and were used as a cover for the books in
the edition. The images inside evoke the energy of growth and are sequentially
arranged based on the stages of plant development.
Jessica Ginsberg is a sophomore printmaking major in the
College of Visual and Performing Arts, and hails from Western Massachusetts.
