All of Nash’s art is about revealing Nature and Life itself through his favourite material, wood. “Rather than elaborating an idea and trying to find the right material, I have always been attracted by wood. Everything about it inspires me, from its form to its essence”, reveals the British artist settled for more than forty years in North Wales.
Well-known for his burnt wood sculptures, from the 28th of September to the 2nd of February 2020, a new retrospective of his work is also on show at the Tower Art Gallery in Eastbourne, housing one of the most important public art collections in the South of England.
