    Woodrow Nash devotes the gallery collection to the human figure — a subject matter romanticized by artists for over five millennium. Looking at magnificent nude sculptures by Michelangelo, Rodin, Henry Moore, and other great artists, we are in awe of the beauty and power of the human form.

  • Zoakiyah, Counsel on Adversity

    Adversity is like a strong wind.

    It tears away from us all but that which cannot be torn, so that we are forced to see ourselves as we really are. We then turn to God for help when we are revealed, only to learn that it is God who gives us the revelation.

Some creative types seem to know what they want to do with their lives from the moment they are cognizant. For others, it is a fascinating, intellectual and emotional adventure, a journey of discovery - and a labour of love. In the tradition of the great masters, Woodrow Nash’s consuming passion to elevate the human spirit takes the form of sculptures. He builds a sense of mystery and charisma into each piece. Through his sculptures, Nash achieves his goal of integrating expression, complex symbolism and sophisticated aesthetics to yield striking embodiments of the human soul and sensuality.
