These original pieces were designed by artist Dylan Garrett Smith exclusively for Connecticut Green Burial Grounds. Dylan is an artist/printmaker whose work is a product of his views regarding humanity’s relationships with - & the continually growing distance from - the natural world.  Combining concepts of occultism, ecology & memento mori, Smith stresses the importance of the natural life/death cycle & the necessity of solitude in nature.  Smith earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn, NY & currently lives & creates in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania.

His interest in green burials began over a decade ago while researching for a project pertaining to ecological issues & sustainability.

 

Being that Smith's work centers around the process of birth - bloom - decay in the natural world, coupled with his penchant for darker images & aesthetics, & a lifestyle that reflects his environmentalist views, returning to the  earth at the end of his life in this manner has become incredibly significant to him.
