The Darkwood woodcut series celebrates a particularly well-loved Vermont maple tree. In it, I see natural forces interacting to create a complex living structure.
 
Amid the chaos of its branches, the interplay of sticks and sky, as its great form presses simultaneously skyward and earthward, I find designs and metaphors of other natural systems, such as the cellular patterns that form our own bodies.
 
These pieces are printed on two layers of Toyogampi paper, laminated with encaustic medium to add dimension, translucency and luminosity.
