Inherent Knowledge: Crone is the 2nd structure in a 3 part series. It was completed in April. This piece references cultivation and the beauty that comes with passing from one stage of life to the next. I use crones (specifically flower imagery) to show the final stage of life. These plants were grown wild and left to propagate and spread their genetic knowledge to a new generation. In contrast to roses that we typically see which have been picked when they first bloom because of their beauty, these crones have fully experienced life and show their age and wisdom. The first structure created in this series (Inherent Knowledge: Mother) uses books as a metaphor for the transference of knowledge from one generation to the next. The mother cultivates the knowledge for a new generation. The final piece (Inherent Knowledge: Nymph) in this series is still in the developmental stages, but will represent innocence and a clean slate for which knowledge will need to penetrate.
