Paperback.  First edition.  Nash called this ‘going’ art, as the wood was constantly changing. More recently Nash has worked with what he terms ‘coming’ art in which he coaxes groups of living trees to form ‘spaces’. One example of this is the work Ash Dome, initiated in 1978 and consisting of twenty-two trees trained to grow together until they meet at the top in a dome. This book will accompany an exhibition of Nash’s work at Tate St Ives. It will include essays from writer and critic, Richard Cork and Susan Daniel McElroy, Director of Tate St Ives, covering the processes, experience and philosophy behind Nash’s work and their presentation in the Modernist context of St Ives.  Condition: Very good.
