we are all connected to this earth from which we have sprung
Abigail Flynt was born near the rice fields of southwest Arkansas. After earning her B.F.A from Southern Arkansas University as a first generation college student in 2015, she moved to Texas and Florida, before finally settling in Tacoma, Washington. Her work emanates from the human figure. She is fascinated by the human form's ability to transcend its existence in art and enter the physical world. Her belief is that it is a universal allegory that can relate to all people, regardless of sex, race, age, or culture. As an environmentalist, Flynt uses clay in conjunction with the figure to show that humanity is more connected to the Earth than we all realize. Stemming from her rural roots, Flynt hopes that her artwork can connect people to each other, and the Earth, finding empathy for both.
