Wood… wood… wood?

I have done a bit of woodworking in the past but I wanted to explore the materiality of wood in a new way. A friend found a chunk of oak in Queen’s Park and he took it home for me. Marveled by the beauty of the rings, I leveled it then used a wire brush to raise the grain. I began printing the rings by hand onto newsprint.

I decided to push the project towards sculpture. What products do we manufacture from wood? Paper, cardboard, plywood, particle board, veneer…? Is it possible for these materials to imitate their parent?

  1. These images are great! Love the idea and can’t wait to see more!

  2. Darn I remembered loving this and what hoping to leave a second comment on my return/relove but I didn’t leave one in the first place.

  3. I would love to use this print on the cover of my poetry collection (been fighting with other stock images, and nothing matches the quality of this). Would you mind if I did?

    I really want to release in the new year, so if you could email me (nathantdeanwriter@gmail.com) with permission before then that would be great. I know this is short notice, and christmas and everything. But… thank you.
