David Nash at Kew.

The sculptor David Nash has a selection of his work around the grounds at Kew Gardens.
His works are large scale and mostly start with a tree, being cast in bronze later.

Two typical examples of his work.

The stripped bark of the Cork Oak is used here with good efect.

You will find sculpture in the glasshouses .......

......and in a gallery.

Yoko Ono at Serpentine Gallery

 This is a version of Wish Tree, by Yoko Ono

 Yoko Ono invites passers-by to write their desires onto a tag and tie it to a branch.

At the end of the exhibition, Ono collects the tags and she plans eventually to incorporate
them into another artwork,"as a concentrated accumulation of human yearning".
