(Dead) Forest for your wall

Life size prints of the cross section of various cut trees by Bryan Nash Gill. Brings new meaning to the genre of Wood Cut printing doesn’t it? I can imagine how awesome a good sized tree print would look on the wall –   to me the wood rings are totally hypnotic. The prints are also reminiscent of topography, metereology and thumbprint studies, all wonderful things in my book. And I love the difference between the different species too. Totally beautiful.

I am presuming the trees were already (sustainably) chopped down, otherwise it’d be a completely daft idea. Keep your eyes peeled for a chopped stump near you and get your printing gear on people!
