Peter J Evans: FeedBacker
19 May–14 July 2007
Fascinated by systems and patterns, Evans explores how such structures can be found even in supposed chaos. Ideas about movement, memory, time, the un-quantifiable, and aesthetic beauty inform his practice, which finds an affinity with Russell Hoban’s writings concerning ‘the moment under the moment’. He seeks to create metaphorical maps of the visible and invisible links between objects and sensations, combining the concrete and the philosophical.
Spacex presents the first solo exhibition by Peter J. Evans comprising new works which will occupy, inhabit and rupture the gallery space through intricate layered wall drawings and floor-based structures. These works seek to describe the silent spaces within each moment, when things are moving, shifting into new ground, syncing or dispersing.
Peter J Evans is one of the most interesting emerging artists in the UK. Evans’ work has been exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions in the UK and internationally. His work is attracting a great deal of attention and he has recently shown work at the Pickled Arts Centre, Beijing; Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Kiasma, Helsinki. He will also be part of a group show at The Drawing Room, London later this year in an exhibition curated by Locus+.
