    Woodrow Nash: African American Sculptor


    Woodrow Nash is an African American sculptor who works have become well known in America and internationally as well. His collectors come from all demographics and races. Nash is especially popular among the working professionals, affluence sports figures, and famous entertainers. He calls his work African Nouveau and focuses on African culture and human form. His work is expressionist, bold, complex, stylistic, and naturalist. He captures the African spirit, soul, body as well as the experience in ways that leaves the viewer forever trapped by its beauty and wonder.

    Nash was born in Akron, Ohio during the late 1940s. He grew up watching 1950s television, attending sanctified churches, and attending urban schools run by predominately white educators. However, having a talent for art, he began his career as a freelance artist drawing murals for local institutions and working as an illustrator. In 1975, he left Akron for New York City where he was employed as a fashion illustrator. There he designed and illustrated record albums for jazz labels for such musicians as Father Hines, Cat Anderson, Arnett Cobbs, and Jeff Lorber Fusion.

    In 1977, he received an Associate Degree in Commercial Art from Pels School of Arts in New York City. He started again to work as a freelance illustrator. However, in less than 10 years, he found himself back in Akron working as a technical illustrator at Goodyear Aerospace Corporation and then as an illustrator for American Greeting Corporation.

    In 1991, Nash moved to Madison, Wisconsin and worked as a graphic artist, a trade that had undergone a full infiltration of computer and electronic imaging. While still an art form, it was still light years away from the quiet expressions offered by humans in the manipulation of clay. Nash would state, “I’m looking for that expression that cuts across the cultural grain.” The attitude that leads many artists into the bizarre and oblique. For him it led him to the very foundation of mankind, Africa and African tribal culture.

    Nash’s human sculptures transmits the African human delicacies and inner harmony. Examining the contemporary male and female physique and upper body, he explores the body’s natural form and mythology. He incorporates various styles and techniques using stoneware, earthenware, terracotta or porcelain. Nash’s work is fired electronically, pit fire or by way of “raku” effect. Although African, it is the concept of 15th century Benin with the graceful, slender proportions and long undulating lines of 18th century Art Nouveau.
