Woodcuts by Bryan Nash Gill

View all 7 Photos

Known for creating abstract sculptures using hundreds of found objects, wood and bronze, Connecticut artist Bryan Nash Gill merges perception with reality in his Woodcuts series. He uses recycled lumber, coats it in ink and washi paper and then uses his fingers and fingernails to press and scratch patterns of tree rings into it until the impression is completely and evenly represented.  These amazing creations resemble our own fingerprints, almost as if Mother Nature pressed her own thumb print into the design to show off her fine work. An artist who’s rooted in nature, Gill just makes it a little easier for us to see.
