What do you do when you find yourself with five truckloads of salvaged century-old rough Douglas Fir beams? Lisa Brawn turned them into amazing woodcuts, mainly referenced from popular culture and painted in bold, vibrant colours. I recently got the chance to see a few up close and was really taken aback by the depth and texture in her work, which can be lost in print or online.
