With the Grain: Wood Sculpture by David Nash
Lewes Town Hall: 5 May - 10 June 2007
David Nash, OBE, RA, is an eminent sculptor who has explored the possibilities of form in wood, trees and the natural environment over the last 35 years. He has produced a significant body of work, examples of which are in collections in Britain and throughout the world.
This exhibition included about 30 major works. They are important pieces which Nash had chosen to keep for himself and they chart his entire career.
The selection demonstrated the many ways in which Nash works with trees. These sculptures have been carved in wood, constructed, and sometimes charred.
The exhibition, and integral education projects was organised by Ann Elliott and Paul Myles, directors of Sculpture Exhibitions Limited, who worked directly with the artist.
