Jo Nash

Jo Nash is a multi-disciplinary artist focussing on how societies and individuals experience and relate to the natural world. Central to his practice is an exploration into those methods and insights that are required to constitute an adequate account of the ecological situation in which we find ourselves. Drawing upon ideas contained within phenomenological philosophy his work takes a speculative and at times whimsical approach to how we experience nature in particular trees.

His practice grew out of a year of recording and documenting a collection of dying and dead horse chestnut trees situated on the banks of the River Wharfe, the trees having been infected by the pathogen pseudomonas syringae.
