Untitled No.2

1974

Evans, Garth
Garth Evans is one of Britain's most prolific sculptors whose practice has largely been defined by the use of geometric, asymmetrical forms and a commitment to simple, everyday materials. Part of the generation between Anthony Caro and New British Sculpture, 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 in the late 1970s. Born in Manchester in 1934, Evans studied at the Slade School of Art (1957-60) and during the 1960s he taught in the Sculpture Department at St Martin’s School of Art where Richard Deacon studied under his direction. In 1979 Garth Evans made a radical break with the UK scene and moved to the US, since when his work has become relatively unknown here.
