About Nicholas Marsh

Nicholas Marsh`s recent work has a lot to do with the re-engaging of his fascination with the British Neolithic, it was the time his ancestors began to farm. They watched the skies and created monuments to the great unknown, sort of interfaces between the land and sky.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
