About

Hanging wall quilt by artist Molly Barnes made out of hand-dyed linen fabric and gold leaf. Large in scale. Artist’s Statement: The smell of honeysuckle. My grandmother's irises are blooming in my mother’s garden. When can I put the seeds in the ground? What’s a flower and what’s a weed? The creek never quits. We can’t eat another frozen pizza this week. The grid is an observational drawing. Teaching observational drawing on Monday. Stir the indigo vat every day. Agnes, don’t bother the snakes. We are out of WiFi. Harvest the last Anemones. Spooky eats them. Bumblebees and hummingbirds. Humble bees and bumming birds. 6 acres is a lot with a push mower. Dip the linen in the indigo vat, hang it on the clothesline, do it again. Sewing machines always break. It’s ladies day at the antique store. Make a cyanotype between the clouds. I could live off the smell of rain and honeysuckle. Artist’s bio: Molly Barnes is an artist and hopeful gardener born and raised in Tennessee. She received her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from Mississippi State University. Molly currently lives with her husband, animals, and plants on 6 acres in the woods near Winchester, TN.
