Born in the late 1940s in Akron, Ohio, Woodrow Nash is the product of sanctified churches, 1950 television images, and black inner city neighborhood schools run by predominantly white middle-class educators. The young student immersed himself in art during an era when artists sought nothing less than old-fashioned honesty in their imagery. Nash’s sculptures transmit human delicacies and inner harmony. Examining the contemporary male and female physique, he explores the body’s natural form and mythology. Today, the work of Woodrow Nash is collected internationally. His collectors’ demographics have no racial boundaries, and include everyone from working professionals to affluent sports figures and entertainment superstars.
