David Nash: Crags, Stacks and Columns
Cristea Roberts Gallery
43 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5JG, UK
Preview Day: 4:30 – 7:30pm Thursday 28 October
We are delighted to exhibit twenty works on paper by David Nash reflecting the natural formations and shapes of the artist’s sculptures in an exhibition entitled David Nash: Crags, Stacks and Columns
Based on David Nash’s (b. 1945) observations of nature and the rural landscape around his home in Wales, the works, which include depictions of trees, crags, and the changing seasons, foster in us, at a time of urgent ecological concern, a deeper understanding of the elements of the natural world.
“Works on paper have always been a part of my practice. I use a specific thickness of plastic sheet and an extremely sharp scalpel. The pastel is applied by rubbing it into a fleece pad and then rubbing the loaded pad over the stencil. The result is then fixed. I have a studio specifically set up for this. The process is very dusty and requires efficient masks and frequent hand washing.”
