For over forty years, David Nash has made sculpture almost exclusively in wood.
At the core of his work is a profound and ever-growing knowledge of trees, enabling Nash to engage closely and intuitively with the characteristics of each species. The extensive statements by him in this book provide a unique insight into both his working methods and the thought processes provoked by this extraordinary collaboration.
David Nash is represented in many museum collections including the Tate Gallery, London, the Guggenheim and Metropolitan Museums, New York, and the Setagaya and Metropolitan Art Museums in Tokyo. He was elected RA in 1999 and awarded an OBE in 2004.
The introduction to this lavishly illustrated book is by the distinguished art historian and critic, Norbert Lynton, who has known and followed the sculptor’s work since the late 1960s.
