Ed Nash was born in the United Kingdom. At age 13, he was awarded an art scholarship to Bedford School, England. He went on to study Fine Art and Psychology at Reading University, England where he graduated with a First Class Honors Degree. In 2006, he moved to Nashville, Tenn., where he now lives and works as a full-time practicing artist. His work is part of many public and private art collections both here in the U.S. and the U.K.; including the Tennessee State Museum. His work is represented in galleries through the U.S. including Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga.
In his exhibit called “Topographies,” Ed Nash wanted to recreate engaging landforms that might be found in remote areas of the earth or other planets. For centuries we have looked at landscapes as a horizontal line; however, thanks to satellite imagery and air travel, the way we view our landscape has changed. We can now see the beauty of the topography. These sculptures might help travelers experience how they view the landscape from an airplane as they look down on Earth and admire the open terrain, sinuous rivers or mountain ranges.
