I’ve not been making any art for over a year now. It’s been too long. In a job with very little free time and certainly no space for anything that I can’t make on my bed leads me here….I am going to do a drawing a day. Silent, blind drawings, based on the sounds around me. I use this periodically for catharsis, among other things it will (hopefully) give me a little creative brain-break.

Brian Nash Gill -  Hemlock 82, 2008

The nature and trees around him have always been an creational source for him, not only are they beautiful from the outside at but also when you try to investigate a look inside. Gill found that things were more beautiful and complex inside than what was visible from the outside. Pattern, texture, color. ‘You’ll never know what you’re missing if you don’t find some way to get inside and look’ and that brought him closer to the gentle giants we live among. Gill used recycled lumber, covered it with ink and paper and pressed and scratched the wood pattern on the paper with his fingers. When Gill is working with wood, he is not fighting it but he is going with it. He is printing over a period of time and you can see and feel the slight changes in the texture or mushrooms growing on it. For him, his process is very organic and it just comes to him while working. Its engagement is to understand his place in this world in this time, which he has to participate as a record of his connection to it. In his prints you can see the natural beauty of the earth and its plants and creatures and the natural unique fingerprints and stories they tell in their texture, if you just listen carefully.

Some images from a walk to Wirksworth Quarry this weekend. It was a really pretty walk, despite the terrible map and directions. It’s about 3.5 miles and aside from the ‘medium difficulty incline’ at the start it’s easy enough.

Going to do some drawing from the quarry images. We shall see how that turns out.

So simple yet so perfect. 100% going to make one of these to go alongside my Tiny house!
