Print of the Week – Woodcut by Bryan Nash Gill

These incredible prints, made by Bryan Nash Gill, are created using remnants of tree stumps, which the artist inks and hand prints to make these large scale records of trees that have been felled. The printing process for this series is incredibly laborious: after rolling out the ink, the artist gingerly places the thin Japanese paper atop the section of wood, and uses the pressure of his fingertips to impress the ink upon paper.

You can see a more in depth explanation of Brian Nash Gill’s process on the Ashes & Milk blog, or take a look at his portfolio.
