Børn Crown X Artist Melanie Pruitt
Melanie Pruitt has an obsessive love of line, form and movement. She finds solace in studying the beauty of human history –
its intricacies, its details of emotional complexity and its unquenched desire to repeat itself. And while she draws inspiration
from mankind’s elaborate tale, she also pays homage to her beautiful Rocky Mountain surroundings, mirroring the organic forms she finds in nature.
Her intense passion for history and earth weaves itself throughout her work, exhibiting itself both realistically and abstractly.
She incorporates repetition in such a way, that each line, while part of a collaborative pattern, feels unique.
Flora (Khloris), in Roman religion, the goddess of flowers and the season of spring (symbol of nature and flowers) The 5 flowers used, all can be found in the countryside of Rome:
Columbine, Lily, Iris, Apple Blossom, Asphodel
Each of the works is broken up using one of the above flowers. Ex: The work w/ the Iris has the white/black flower at the bottom, the smaller, line detailed flowers at the top and the larger flower part that the goddess face is set back into. When creating the five Flora goddesses I wanted the large flower part to be like the ultimate couture collar. Handcrafted by the goddess Flora, a symbol of new growth and rebirth of self.
