The relationship between David Nash and Trees dates back more than half a century. When the artist moved to North Wales at the end of the 1960s, it was because he had found an inexpensive home and studio in an old chapel and shepherd’s hut, but also because he knew that there he would find raw and vigorous nature, where the vegetal and the mineral have lived in harmony for centuries.

Rythmes et vibrations
Right from the start of abstract art, there was a split between two lines, indicating seemingly opposed tendencies: on the one hand a structured and economical art, often proscribing curves, seeming to privilege the cerebral and programmatic, and on the other, a warmer and more informal art in which spontaneity and sensitivity imposed their rhythm.

From 1948 with his series of etchings, “Les Métiers”, Pierre Alechinsky placed prints at the very heart of his work. Later, with the artistic collaboration of S.W.

The artist has taken from his files a series of paper works that are a rare testimony to the stages in this creative process.
