Art that Grows in TreesAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Bryan Nash Gill, an artist with California roots, uses a time-intesive rubbing technique to make relief prints from the cross-section of trees. The result is art that is nature-based and totally now.
Nash, who is a California Arts Fellow and received his Masters of Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts in Oakland, now lives and works in New Hartford, Connecticut. However, he says on his website that his work is still influenced by the geography of Northern California.
In interviews, Gill says that he was inspired to make the relief prints after splitting wood all day to heat his home and studio.
He says that a lot of his work, which includes sculpture made from natural materials, begins that way: by accidently encountering something in the woodlands around his home.
