Tree cross section relief print range.
10 pulled prints only
Current edition number 4/10
This series was originally to be released at SALA Festival but with things how they are and the suffering from the fires seeming to be a memory we thought the time was right to release these heart felt pieces. We are blessed to be able to share these stories with you.
Alinta the traditional owners name for fire tells a story of loss, perseverance and positivity.
Alinta was part of the woodlot that joins Artwine, the Cudlee Creek fires raged through these properties sparing the infrastructure but burning many of the vines, woodlot and fencing.
Wood Relief Prints
These collaborative beautiful large scale tree prints pay tribute to the library of information each one of these trees hold. The Dendrochronology not only tells us the age of the tree but the passage of time each tree has lived. With each tree growing one ring annually these rings show a story of drought, fire, disease, insect plagues, wildlife and excessive rain. Long after these trees have fallen they continue to change shape, swelling, splitting and contracting with the exposure to rain and sun.We source these cross sections from fallen trees in the Adelaide Hills and besides the environmental story each tree has a human story to tell. A marriage held under the shade of a once magnificent gum, the inspiration of the charcoal drawing of a cedar tree by Hans Heysen or a tree planted for a loved one passed too soon.Each section is carefully brought back to our studio where we plane, sand and char the surface to reveal the depth of the rings, a process that can take days to complete. Ink is then applied to the surface and the canvas to the ink, careful rubbing completes the process. Only 10 prints are taken from each tree and every print will be unique.
