For internationally renowned sculptor David Nash, the use of wood--and by extension the science of trees--has proven central to his acclaimed body of work. Whether through cutting, charring, casting or planting, trees have been the singular resource for nearly all of his sculptural pursuits. Trees also serve as the source of inspiration for his drawings and documentaries. A long-standing and avid environmentalist, Nash utilizes trees as partners in the creative process. He allows the character, texture and history of the material to play a significant role in the creative process and its future life. This groundbreaking exhibition is the foundation of a major presentation exclusive to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park that will host Nash's works in the sculpture galleries, conservatories and across the gardens and grounds.
