    schema:description ""David Nash is one of the United Kingdom's most prolific sculptors, known for his work with wood, trees, and the natural environment. In a career spanning forty years, he has created more than two thousand sculptures out of wood, many of them monumental in scale. These sculptures are carved using a chainsaw or axe, or sometimes partially burned to produce a charred surface. Through his work, Nash has gained a deep understanding of the properties of trees and has come to see the artistic process as collaborative--drawing from the material and the natural world as well as from the artist himself ... the artist will produce and exhibit his sculptures, installations, drawings, and film throughout Kew's remarkable botanical gardens and green spaces, glasshouses, and galleries. Beginning in April 2012, Nash will be in residence at Kew creating new pieces for the exhibition using trees that have come to the end of their natural life. Beautifully illustrated, this book catalogs the exhibition's outdoor and indoor sculptures and includes a map detailing where they can be found throughout the grounds. An opening essay provides additional background and context. David Nash at Kew Gardens will offer unique insight into this accomplished artist's work and life and encourage readers to engage with the sculptures and their relation to nature as well as the beautiful setting of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew."--Publisher description."@en ;
