Komorebi: Prints by Laura Wilder

"Komorebi" - a Japanese word that means the play of sunlight through leaves.

"In the past century, beauty in fine art has not always been valued. But humans need it. Especially now. I make art to celebrate the beauty that is still all around us. Turn off the news and notice the light through the trees. It will calm you down, and lift you up.” - Laura W.

Laura's prints are created by doing a separate hand-carving for each color, and printing the inked carvings on a hand-cranked letterpress.
