Will Nash

(1973-)
Artist and sculptor Will Nash was born in Bangor, North Wales, in 1973. He studied Multi Media Fine Art at Middlesex University (1994-1997), and gained an MA in Design by Project from the University of Brighton (2004-2006).


At the centre of Will Nash's practice is a concern with form, structure and quantity. His sculptures and installations are the result of ongoing explorations of mathematical forms and the relationships they have with one another. His different bodies of work fall into families of these forms that are connected by a particular geometry, repeating sequences of planes and angles to create similar variations on a theme.


Atomic Fever at Roche consists of 510 x 25mm diameter stainless steel tubes bent to a specific angle which allows them to be connected together as multiple loops and lines in an infinite variety of form. This filigree is suspended, woven across a 5 meter gap between two large Linden (Common Lime) trees. The work, whose geometry mirrors in a hugely magnified form the structure of the carbon atom in a diamond, is integrated into the branch structure of the trees by means of a specially developed push-fit system. The polished silver tubes pick up and reflect the colour of their surroundings, so like a Chameleon, Atomic Fever will change through the seasons to match its environment. While on the one hand this geometrical construct contrasts with the organically grown form of the tree, on the other it seems almost like a proliferating growth, tightly intertwined with the two Linden trees
Nash has exhibited regularly since 2001 in both group and solo exhibitions. He lives and works in Lewes, East Sussex.
