Evan Holloway Biography

The sculptural work of Evan Holloway is based on his belief in the simple and fundamental transactions between people and objects. This also means that his sculptures are not just abstractions or decorations, but are to be understood as a commentary on contemporary society and its values. Evan Holloway uses the vocabulary of modern sculpture for rigorous formal experimentation and he constantly plays on allusions and materials. His questioning of perception and representation is also explored through his love of craftsmanship, and through his comments on ‘style’ or ‘taste’. His work is characterised by the playful use of colour and the introduction of human figures, mostly in the form of heads, masks or little creatures, and the mathematical, alphabetical and geometric systems that he uses to disrupt and re-order the associations typically attached to them.
