These paintings by artist Emily Flint depict an assortment of women in varying positions. Whether hanging sideways or upside down, what is central to all of these women is the way in which Flint has made it appear as if they are literally flowing into different subjects, objects and backdrops.

Based in Lynchburg, Virginia, Flint is directly inspired by the James River and Blue Ridge Mountains. She draws much creativity from the natural environments, hence her images of wood, beehives, insects and hey.

Although rooted in natural landscapes, there is something otherworldly about Flint's work. The lines of paint are aggressive and hyperreal, making many of the females seem as if set in a dream.
