African Beauty – Sculpture by Woodrow Nash

Written by , Posted in Art, Baltimore, Canon 7D, Maryland

I was walking from the parking lot on my way to the concert at Artscape and was awestruck by these beautiful sculptures by artist Woodrow Nash.

“The serial nature of the works — an inspired composition of torsos, sculptures and timeless objects of contemplation – recall a primitive minimalist whose relentless repetitiveness produces extraordinary and mysterious structures.

Inside these bold bodies dwell the spirits of African kings, queens, warriors and kinsmen.” — artist website
