African Nouveau Sculpture by Woodrow Nash

In the tradition of the great masters, Woodrow Nash’s consuming passion to elevate the human spirit takes the form of sculptures.  While the images are African, in general, the concept is 15th century Benin with the graceful, slender proportions and long, undulating lines of 18th century Art Nouveau. In his pieces, Nash achieves his goal of integrating expression, complex symbolism and sophisticated aesthetics to yield striking embodiments of the human soul and sensuality.  He calls his work African Nouveau.  You can learn more the artist and his work by watching this video:
