Rescheduled after postponement (due to floods)

We are delighted to present our fifth season of contemporary artists' talks in a partnership between the University of Worcester’s Fine Art department and Meadow Arts.


Jack Evans’ playful sculptures reference the disconnect between the romanticisation of ruins and the reality of modern architectural evolution. His work featured in Meadow Arts' 2019 exhibition in partnership with English Heritage, In Ruins at Witley Court. Capital was shown within the ruined mansion, where its Corinthian capitals with goat-head motifs (that were originally created for Whiteley's Shopping Centre in London) alluded to a loss of decorative architecture and traditional arts to soulless redevelopment.

He was born in Mansfield and now lives and works in London. He graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, from Central Saint Martins in 2015 and completed an ERASMUS Exchange, École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2014. Evans' recent exhibitions include In Ruins (Meadow Arts); Life is too short to be serious all the time, London (Lumen Open Call); Inhabiting The Dome, Whiteley’s Building, London; Postage and packaging paid for, Art Licks Weekend 2018; The Floor is Lava Subsidiary Projects, London (Art Night 2018); The grass is greener HERE Inderwick Road, London.
