David Nash at Kew
It amazes me that the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, which houses one of the finest collections of botanical art in the world, should invite a junk-peddler like David Nash to inflict his mindless abstract sculptures upon its wonderful gardens. So he has 3 diplomas in art from 3 different art colleges and he's been making a living out of this junk for 40 years, but that's no excuse. David Nash at Kew: A Natural Gallery opens tomorrow and runs for an entire year (CLICK). He'll be working on dead trees until October. I'm all in favour of recycling, but turn it into something aesthetically pleasing or useful, not rubbish as above. Tickets cost £13.90 for adults, £11.90 for silver surfers, children under 17 free.
