WE LOVE NASH GILL

– Verlyn Klinkenborg

Artist and sculptor Bryan Nash Gill knows where heat comes from, and more than that, he knows good oak (and ash, and cedar).
Woodcut is a hardback book of his large scale relief prints made from the beautiful cuttings of salvaged dead or decaying wood. Born and raised in rural Connecticut, Gill has always taken inspiration from the New England countryside, but only started working with wood a few years ago while building his art studio. The first prints he made came from the two-by-fours, four-by-fours and eight-by-eights that now make up his workshop walls. The beauty he created from these prints evolved, and eventually became a series of works on paper and the book.
