This is a serigraph, not a woodcut. I was driven to feature it here at least partially because I'd recently been captivated by prints of cross sections of trees such as those of Bryan Nash Gill. Here we have what initially appears to be that, but it is not. It is a stylized representation. Upon closer look, it reads less and less like tree rings, and more like an illustrative landscape with a line of evergreen trees above layers of sediment. But then there also seems to be a strip of snow over a blue sky and a circling, rushing river. Behind the cross section we see more falling snow and coniferous branches...as winter arrives, a broad view of this witness's biosphere is written into the grooves of its trunk.

What ever made us think we could somehow separate? As if our minds could escape our bodies, or our bodies escape any sphere-or-otherwise-shaped-ship hurling through space? We are not merely embedded in the landscape. We are part of it.

Almost three years in the making and now The Nautilus and the Ammonite Pres-sale Campaign is LIVE! For those who don't know about it, check out the video above. I have 6 weeks to raise funds needed to print a first edition of 500. Check it out and please share with any potentially interested friends through email, Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth, etc. - it all helps. Thanks so much!
