I have always been fascinated by the prickly casings on the chestnuts that fall with great abandon around this time of year (September). They seem so defensive and impenetrable, yet shortly after dropping from the tree they fall away from the chestnut and leave the seed defenseless. They thus seem so pointless, and yet are so decorative. I picked one up recently, took it home, and rendered it as it sat on my desk with a shadow thrown by my desk lamp. This was the most technically demanding and time-consuming of the five block prints produced so far this year.

The edition consists of 30 prints on BFK Rives (France) 180gsm paper, hand printed by the artist with Speedball water soluble block printing ink, using an antique hand press. All prints are editioned, titled, signed and dated by the artist.
