But, Hands Have Eyes: Sculpture from Six Decades

About

The work of Garth Evans is integral to the history of British sculpture. His practice has largely been defined by the use of geometric, asymmetrical forms and a commitment to simple, everyday materials. Evans is noted for a body of work that offers a bridge between 1960s modernism and the lyrical experimentation with a broader range of materials that followed.

Experimenting with the potential of scale, weight, medium and form, Evans' work comprises both a formal and conceptual approach. He is always interested in interrogating established boundaries and, as a result, his sculptures are made from a diverse range of materials including ceramics, steel, leather and fibreglass. Evans states that many of his works, even when most abstract, are 'triggers for, and containers of, particular identifiable memories'. Ultimately, Garth Evans' works are ambiguous, multi-faceted and completely original.

This exhibition, Evans’ first in Wales since the 1970s, features works from the 1960s to the present day.
