American artist Nicholas Wilson uses motifs from nature to express his passion for nature through his printmaking. Understanding that wood as a raw material used for engraving is difficult to control, Wilson’s prints are demonstrative of great precision and attention to detail. The highly decorative prints remind us of the fairytale illustrations we used to go to over and over again as children. These enchanted compositions are at the same time characterized by powerful realism and the presence of both quietness and revolt.
