Woodcut

Little known fact, I’m mildly obsessed with cross sections of trees. I love their untold stories, timeline of life, and individuality. Connecticut-based artist Bryan Gill Nash has created Woodcut, a collection of large scale reliefs made from trees on the land surrounding his studio and neighborhood. I’ve poured over it cover to cover and love having it as a part of my coffee table collection!

    I love the fact you can tell how old a tree is by the number of rings!

    These really are stunning and would look so beautiful hanging on the wall. Trees have so many beautiful aspects!

    Love your blog, so glad I came across it!

    Saw this in the New York Times a few weeks ago… come to find out the artist lives relatively near me! Love this work. I’ve been obsessed with the rings on trees since I was little and my father began the tradition of keeping a cross section from every trunk of our Christmas tree.

    STUNNING. I’ve got a minor obsession with all things boix & faux bois.
