Jack Evans is interested in ideas of aspiration and masculinity, drawing motifs from the aesthetic ideas of ‘luxury’, and the people (men) who reinforce it. Through recreation and imitation, his work draws from the semiotics of architecture and taste, ranging through classicism, brutalism and minimalism, through to the more obscure symbols of aspiration revived from his Nineties childhood in the midlands, Evans’ work questions and examines the ideas of form and beauty, especially in regard to the places we occupy and inhabit, whilst alluding to what may be the banal and farcical nature of it all.
Jack (b. Mansfield) lives and works in London. He graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2015. Recent exhibitions and projects include: Summer Exhibition 2020 (Group Exhibition) at the Royal Academy of Arts (London, 2020), Bold Tendencies 2020 Season (Group Exhibition, London, 2020), The Potion Room (Group Exhibition, curated by Georgia Stephenson) at Subsidiary Projects (London, 2020), Sitting Show (Group Exhibition) at East Bristol Contemporary (Bristol, 2019).
