The new season opens at the Mostyn with the first major presentation of works by David Nash to be seen at the Mostyn for two decades. It introduces to a new generation the work of one of the country’s most respected sculptors at work today. Through a unique selection of some twenty-five works, four of which are made especially for this presentation, and occupying the whole ground floor, Red, Black, Other is the first exhibition to make an assessment of the nature of colour in his work.
