Informed by an ongoing research into pre-internet sources of knowledge and methods of communication, Nash’s practice includes drawing, printmaking, animation and sculptural assemblage. Embracing a deliberately hand-made aesthetic, and drawing on influences including 1970s & 80s children’s television programmes, fairy tales, reference books and museum visits, his work is an exploration of human fallibility in an age of digital perfection, alternative facts and increasing automation.
