Description

This book marks the major exhibition 'David Nash at Kew Gardens' staged in Kew Gardens from 2012 through to April 2013. One of the UK's most prolific creators of ecological art, David Nash produced and exhibited his work across the Gardens, with sculptures, installations, drawings and film in place throughout the Gardens, glasshouses, and exhibition spaces. In a career spanning 40 years, Nash has created over 2,000 sculptures out of wood, many of them monumental in scale. These sculptures are sometimes carved using a chainsaw or axe, or partially burned to produce a charred surface. Through his work, he has gained a deep understanding of the properties of trees and the artistic process itself is, for Nash, deeply collaborative - between the artist, his material, and the natural world.



Extensively illustrated, this book gives a unique insight into Nash's art and life, and encourages readers to engage with the sculptures and their relation to nature, and the beautiful setting of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
