Tree Rings

The Tree Rings series is inspired by a cross section of a large felled tree that sits on the path between my home and studio. The cut reveals a delicate tracery of growth rings, which elegantly speak to the passage of time. Additionally, the rings record the fragility of nature by documenting the effects of climatic change in tree growth. These monotypes are printed on 100% rag Rives BFK paper, and include a base image that is worked with dry point, gouache, embroidery, and beading. – Diana Arcadipone
