Presented in collaboration with Paris’s Galerie Lelong, the exhibition Red and Black spotlights the most recent work from the internationally recognized artist David Nash. He is fond of contrasting the two colours in his latest wood sculptures, and they are a dominating force in his new drawings and pochoirs. In them, bright red ignites the deep black of charred wood, a medium that is emblematic in Nash’s work.
Born in Esher, England in 1945, David Nash lives and works in the northern Welsh town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. He studied at the Kingston College of Art (1963–64), Brighton College of Art (1964–67) and Chelsea School of Art (1969–70). Among many other places, his work has been exhibited in Great Britain, the United States, France and Japan, and can be found in the collections of a number of major museums, including those of London’s Tate Gallery and New York’s Guggenheim Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
