Flourished, Gathered is part of Haskell’s Flourished series, which is a
sibling to their larger body of work, Decomposed. Flourished is a
collection of graphic studies that focuses on the botanical and desirable
elements of nature in various parts of the life cycle. Most of the studies in
Haskell’s collection were discovered during their travels throughout
Brooklyn, including to the Old Stone House’s garden and the many yards,
parks, tree pit gardens, and bodegas along the way.
“The city leaves behind many treasures to find if you are actually looking;
this is a sample of what it’s revealed to me.”
