“The Forest Awakes”

See You in the Foggy Forest (2010): oil-based woodcut on paper by Katsutoshi Yuasa

So, through a happy accident, it looks like I’m going to have an artist’s book included in the exhibition Time, the deer, is in the wood of Hallaig, to be mounted at St. John on Bethnal Green this June.

I am super-excited about this exhibit (even though I won’t be able to see it in person), as Amy’s put together some truly stunning art and artefacts on the theme of forests, history and memory.  Check out the link to get a look at some of the beautiful work — including historical photos of submerged forests, artist’s books, and woodcut prints (like the one above by Katsutoshi Yausa).  I feel extraordinarily lucky to have my humble little book project in such handsome company.

If this project sounds as amazing to you as it does to me, please consider contributing to the exhibition’s Kickstarter page.  Donations will help defray the cost of transporting and displaying the works, as well as other incidental costs associated with the exhibition.

And if you happen to be in London in June, go check it out — and send me lots of pictures, please!
