LINES OF ENQUIRY
6 - 14 December ❘ 10am - 4pm
Opening Night: 5 December ❘ 6pm - 9pm
Steve Evans is an artist and structural engineer.
His work is rooted in his interest in architecture and in the way that shape and form provide structural stability. It incorporates the techniques and formal qualities of technical drawing before the advent of CAD – qualities of precision, regimentation, the repetition of line and reference to geometry and measurement.
Unlike CAD these works contain minute inconsistencies. The spacing, whilst measured, is imprecise, the thickness of line is variable.
These ‘flaws’ evident in the hand-drawn pieces,add qualities that make each unique – sometimes the arrangements of line create visual disturbancesand illusions beyond the original architectural or formal references.

Whilst the works are clearlyconcerned with man-made form and celebrate the modern, they are also pieces in their own right –abstractions that explore and extend pictorial space through the use of light, line and colour.
