artist bryan nash gill presses his fingers along each of the tree's growth rings to imprint the texture from the woodcut on to the surface of the paper. each relief print is a graph of a tree's life, from beginning to end. showing a swell from a rain-soaked spring, suppression from pollution or drought, scars from a fire or an avalanche. when i look at nash's beautiful prints is see times of success or failure, danger and safety, and maybe even periods of happiness and sadness.
