British, Born 1945

Master draughtsman and sculptor David Nash studied at the Kingston College of Art from 1963-64. He studied at the Brighton College of Art for three years, as well as the Chelsea School of Art from 1969-70.

A member of the first generation of English land artists, Nash creates his sculptures from fallen or dead trees indigenous to the region where the work will be exhibited. He seeks out the forms inherent in the tree's original shape and utilizes these forms throughout his carving in order to further develop what nature has originally created. Nash has won extensive awards and exhibited his work throughout Britain, Europe, the United States, and Japan. His work is in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the National Museum in Dublin, the Tate Gallery in London, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
