"For over forty years, David Nash has made sculpture almost exclusively in wood. At the core of his work is a profound and ever-growing knowledge of trees, enabling Nash to engage closely and intuitively with the varying characteristics of each species of wood that he uses. The extensive statements by him in this book provide a unique insight into both his working methods and the thought processes provoked by this extraordinary collaboration with trees. Early on, Nash rejected the hitherto unchallenged notion that only unseasoned timber could be used by artists or craftsmen. The direct result of this is that in much of his work, the moment when he has finished carving a piece is only the beginning of the development of the sculpture as it reacts to heat, light, moisture, or drying." "Also presented here are numerous examples of sculptures dealing with a favourite theme - the universal forms of the cube, the sphere, and the pyramid - as well as Nash's highly innovative black sculptures, produced by a controlled charring of the forms." "This lavishly illustrated book has a substantial introduction, tracing the career of David Nash and evaluating his sculpture, by a distinguished art historian and critic, the late Norbert Lynton, who had followed and admired the sculptor's work since the late 1960s."--BOOK JACKET.
