Off the Canvas - Art on Recycled Paper and Wood









There is something alluring about art that exists off the canvas. Illustration on recycled, reclaimed, and natural materials feels approachable and tangible. And whether the art commands attention from the decaying paper, splintering wood, and corrosive metal or assimilates and weaves into the material, it is the history and texture of the material, the beautiful layer of story, that pulls. In honor of Earth Day, we hope you enjoy some striking pieces on paper, reclaimed wood, and recycled silk. Reuse. Recycle. Reinvent.

Intricate Drawings on Wood



I was immediately drawn to Camellie's handmade drawings on wood. Originally from Romania, now living and working in the UK, Cami's aesthetic pulls hard. Her intricate ink on white acrylic complements the texture of the wood. The grain patterns, rough edges, and fibrous composition of bark frames her starkly beautiful illustrations, and the contrast is just plain lovely.

Primal Drawings and Falling Limbs



Piotrs work is pretty and primal. The artist's rural, folk-art sensibility is expressed in the masks and dense tribal and geometric patterns. Reminiscent of wood block prints or cave paintings, his work tells a rugged tale about nature and human nature. Visit his website for more.

The Woods at Play



Sarah Nicolas Williams was born in the wilderness of Vermont and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah valley. The woods of her childhood seep into her graceful indian ink and watercolor vignettes and blur the boundaries of her backyard. Sophisticated woodland animals in polished brass buttons enjoy a slice of cherry pie, or recline on a moonlit hammock, with the utmost civility. Soothing images of nature in repose. Brought to you, brought to me, by UncommonGoods.

I'm Back to Save the Universe

I can't help but love this illustration made for one of my favorite bands. The above is part of a poster created by Aldis Ozolins for a Radiohead concert that was printed using a woodcut, 3-layer silk screen on reeves bfk tan paper. Zoom out to see the whole thing.

Mysterious Creatures

Love Jeremiah Ketner's artwork. It typically features small creatures floating in abstract landscapes with free use of pastel colors and done in acrylic on wood. More samples found on his flickr feed.
