For more than forty years, David Nash has profoundly influenced a generation of artists, led by Andy Goldsworthy, with his groundbreaking sculpture, almost exclusively in wood. Working from a deep and ever-growing knowledge of trees, Nash was a pioneer in the aesthetics of "coming," or growing works, and "going," or works that are made with the intention that over time they will merge again with nature. This lavishly illustrated book features a substantial biographical and critical introduction by the distinguished art historian and critic Norbert Lynton, who knew and championed the sculptor's work from the late 1960s. The artist's own extensive statements provide a unique insight into both his working methods and the thought processes provoked by this extraordinary collaboration with trees.
