Biography

Land artist David Nash is perhaps best known for Ash Dome, a circle of 22 ash trees that since 1978, Nash has been coaxing to bend and meet at the top. Famously using every part of fallen trees, Nash creates monumental wood sculptures and charcoal drawings that explore the interaction between humans and their natural environment. Nash blackens and carves the raw material with industrial tools such as blowtorches and chainsaws, belying the fine details of his dramatic sculptures.
