Evan Holloway - Left-Handed Guitarist
Evan Holloway (born USA 1967) makes idiosyncratic sculptures with an aesthetic more akin to hippy craft workshops than contemporary artists studios, turning matters of taste and any appreciation of slick fabrication on their head. Subtle comments on modern sculpture’s legacy are interwoven repeatedly with playfully painted colours and figures that often appear to be physically trapped within the works themselves. Extensive uses of varying materials combine to produce a complex amalgamation of mathematical, alphabetical and geometric systems, colour spectrum charts and three-dimensional diagrams of social structures with a primitive pleasure in people making and engaging with man-made objects.
