As a major retrospective of his work comes to an end at the National Museum of Cardiff, the British sculptor and artist David Nash presents a collection of pastels and charcoals with trees as their theme. Demonstrating great interest for the landscapes and nature that surround him, David Nash works mostly with wood. He explores the very essence of trees, their materials and their symbolism, in their natural environment. Mostly known for his sculptures, often using burnt wood, David Nash is working in 2D here, producing simple forms with a strong expressive force. Having started his career as an artist and painter, David Nash accords great importance to colour, related to details he observes in the landscapes. Here, red and black are the dominant colours in his works on paper.
