An original large artwork of a section of tree trunk of a Macrocarpa type of Cedar. The source wood came from a wood yard in North Devon from a tree planted there by the Victorians.
There are two versions here created from separate printing blocks - one with the straight edge to the left (LH) and one with the straight edge to the right (RH) - images are not a mirror of each other as they were made from 2 separate pieces sequentially cut from the same log. They look fantasic hung as a pair - like angel's wings. If you wanted to buy the pair, you will need to order one RH and one LH from this listing.
Available signed and numbered out of a limited artists edition, each of 20 in Black. Each version is slightly different as the amount of ink, pressure and paper orientation varies a little with each as they are individually printed.
The overall image looks like a map of an island with apparent contours, rivers, hills and coastline but is of course an exact replication of the tree rings and grain of this piece of this log sliced at its a particular point where it was cut.
Handprinted using sustainable inks and archival Japanese paper. The actual image size is 90cm x 70cm and it is printed onto paper 103cm x 76cm. Supplied as either a bare print rolled up in a protective tube or in a black or white frame as shown (using plexiglass in place of picture glass for safety). This woodblock can also be printed in many other colours - it looks lovely in aqua blue like the waves
To create a detailed printed image involves several stages including seasoning for several months, sanding, charring, brushing, sealing and printing. It is such a joy to work by hand with wood, ink and paper.
Using a relief printing technique, every print is handmade and unique due to the variations in inking and print pressure. The results may be considered a fingerprint or scan of the tree trunk at a particular point along the trunk including any effects of insects or man.
