Bryan Nash Gill
Creating large-scale relief prints from cross sections of trees, Bryan Nash Gill revealed the sublime power locked inside trees' arboreal rings, patterns not only of great beauty, but also a year-by-year record of the life and times of the fallen or damaged logs.
These exquisitely detailed prints are collected and published here for the first time, with an introduction by esteemed nature writer Verlyn Klinkenborg and an interview with the artist describing his labor-intensive printmaking process.
Woodcut will appeal to anybody who appreciates the grandeur and mystery of trees, as well as those who work with wood and marvel at the rich history embedded in its growth.
