Artist Bryan Nash Gill is making relief prints from the cross-sections of trees. The results are amazing and inspirational.
The artist begins by selecting a specimen from an old mill that is located next to his studio. The wood is then prepared for print making. The surface of the wood is covered with ink. A sheet of handcrafted washi paper is laid across the surface, and using a laborious rubbing technique developed by the artist himself, the texture of the wood is transferred.
His artwork is currently on display at the Chicago Botanical Garden, Chicago, Illinois
