Throughout her career, Jackie Skrzynski (skrin-ski) has been making and exhibiting art that challenges the arbitrary boundaries between humans and nature. Beyond her studio practice, Skrzynski is interested in bringing art to the community in creative ways, such as her pop-up exhibition vehicle, PUG PROJECTS, and the guided group SILENT WALKS which she leads through the woods near her home. Her work has been recognized with numerous exhibitions, publications and grants, and she is active in the creative community in Newburgh, NY.

For many years, I have taken daily walks through the woods near my home. With this drawing, I attempt to translate what that walk can sometimes feel like, when the skin that separates me from air, mud, and grass becomes highly permeable. The open mouths suggest a type of communion–through consuming (eating) and being consumed (decay). Both these actions offer a connection to the eternal, however one may define it. The title, The Grail, is the name of the place where I walk. It also refers to the vessel used at the Last Supper that became legend during the Middle Ages, symbolizing body, blood and immortality.
