Plaisaintain: New Sculpture by James Evans

From May 4 – to 27 we will be exhibiting a new series of monochromatic sculptures, drawings and sketches by London-based artist James Evans.

Born in Essex in 1964, Evans studied ceramics at the Central School of Art and Design in London during the mid-1980s, before moving stateside to take an MA in Fine Arts at the University of Colorado. Relatively little known in the 1990s, he later came to prominence through his inclusion in the group shows Atlantic Crossings at the Barbican Art Centre, London, 1998 and Ripe, at the Crafts Council, London, 2000. He was subsequently shortlisted for the prestigious Jerwood Applied Arts Prize in 2001 and the Arts Foundation Fellowship in 2004.

Evans’ approach is essentially that of a sculptor, his work retaining a central place for formal values and taking great delight in materiality. There is an almost childlike joy in his enthusiasm for experimentation with his chosen material, clay, and the myriad forms which from it he creates.

His trans-Atlantic experiences seem to have left a mark on his work, for within it are echoes of the pop and funk ceramics of West coast America. In common with artists such as Ken Price, his sculptural forms at times possess a slick, almost bubble-gum quality.

In common with the sculptor Richard Deacon, another artist whose work Evans admires and with whom he has briefly worked, the seemingly highly abstract vocabulary of forms that he has evolved frequently retains the suggestion of body parts. Though such features are never presented literally, one can sense within his sculptures the soft folds of a belly, or the contour of a neck.

It is indeed a love of experiment and subtly suggested humour that makes James Evans’ work endlessly thrilling, surprising and intriguing.
