Evan’s work oscillates between the realms of abstraction and figuration, anthropomorphism and zoomorphism, questioning the language of sculpture: about the relationships between form and material, sculpture and plinth, mass and gravity. Evans maps out his own territory, bringing together translations of historic aesthetic moments with new and unexpected material forms to make work that is unnervingly dynamic and visceral.
Evans has previously exhibited in ‘New Order: British Art Now II’, Saatchi Gallery, London, (2014); ‘Solar Eyes’, Tramway, Glasgow (2013) The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, (2011); ‘ Flesh and Bones’, Liste 16, Basel, (2012); ‘Anti-Autonome’, Mary Mary, Glasgow (2010).
Nick Evans (b.1976) lives and works in Glasgow, UK.
