In our days the pictures of the world can be rather gloomy. So Carsten Nash's paintings are an encouraging experience with the infectious optimism of his brushstrokes. An optimism which - without ever becoming shallow - is given free play on the canvas.
A pupil of Egill Jacobsen and son of Jørgen Nash - not forgetting Asger Jorn, his paternal uncle - Carsten Nash has had inspiration galore to draw from - and this may also have given him a desire to explore the corners and frontiers of his own personal world.
Today Carsten Nash works in Portugal and Sweden and, especially, at his own Christianshavn studio in Copenhagen. One-man exhibitions since 1976.
