Further information:
"Forest Song is a book of 12 woodblock print images and 11 woodblock text images describing a subconscious journey through illness to restored health. The prints grew out of a period of illness in India. I was traveling for several months in Asia and found myself quite sick in Dharamsala, India, home of the Tibetan government-in-exile. There I stayed for two months being treated by Tibetan doctors and living in a hotel/monastery so that every morning at 3 a.m. I would awaken to the sound of chanting monks. A mysterious environment to be sinking into the lethargy of illness. The slow recovery and its accompanying sense of inwardness is the feeling out of which this series came. Although it shows no outward reference to the surrounding environment or my illness the prints are psychologically representative. The text was written by me to add to the atmosphere of mystery rather than as explanation." Art Hazelwood
Both a limited edition and a trade edition copy are held in the collection.
