Nash on the exhibition
'Most exhibitions have an opening date – you get everything ready for that day, and then the exhibition stays the same. Kew is open to the public all the time so the energy and excitement of building this exhibition is visible. It will evolve through the seasons with new work being made on site – we’re going to grow this show.'

New works to discover
Two rings of oak of different volumes - both carved from the centre curving down to the edge.
Nash has found the oval forms of plant cells aesthetically beautiful, especially as a colour experience. He has responded to them in sculpture and drawings.
This sculpture, a gathering, is made from curvy branches from the oak tree in the Wood Quarry.
