Paul Nash Mash-up

My love of war art and Vorticist collided yesterday at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in a piece by Phillip King called Shogun.

Although King said that he was inspired by a ball bearing he saw on the side of the road, what I could see in this sculpture of wood and metal was a merging of nature and machinery very reminiscent of the fantastic paintings by Paul Nash, especially this one that recently sold at auction, A Scarred Battlefield.
