Artist’s Project: Bryan Nash Gill


A project related to Gill’s eponymous exhibition at Esopus Space in the spring of 2012 that was inspired by the gallery’s OSB particle-board flooring. The piece, featuring die-cuts and foldouts, includes facsimile reproductions of five of Gill’s test prints for a 122-square-foot, 8-color woodcut with applied monoprint that covered the gallery’s north wall.
