David Nash: 200 Seasons is one of the most ambitious exhibitions of David Nash’s work presented in England.
The exhibition is a major survey of Nash’s career from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring his unique contribution to British sculpture and the international Land Art movement. The work on display reflects the artist’s long relationship with Wales, in particular Capel Rhiw, Blaenau Ffestiniog, his home and studio for over half a century.
200 Seasons, which is installed across Towner’s four major gallery spaces, features key sculptures, films and drawings from the late 1960s to the present day. The exhibited sculptures explore the different ways the artist has cut, carved and manipulated wood to produce work that crosses abstraction and figuration, always retaining his trademark reference to the forms of the original tree and the unique qualities of the chosen material.
The exhibition has been developed in partnership with National Museum Cardiff.
