Bill Zima



 

Born 1961 USA

Bill Zima resides with his family in Edinburgh, the landscape that took Bill back to his earliest work, his drawings of hills. This re-connection inspired the current body of work Trees. Each of the trees in this body of work began as contour drawings, outlined first with the image built up with repetitive marks resembling bark, reptile skin, or even ancient armor like liquid chain mail.

Each image's composition is carefully determined by the physicality of the tree. "I find bonsai trees to be particularly interesting when given a larger scale. They assume a presence. Once the drawing phase is complete the paper is permanently bonded to a panel and a wax/resin layer encases the whole piece providing the final image with a tactile atmosphere."
