hangmenProjects is delighted to invite you to Peter J. Evans’ first solo exhibition in Stockholm. As our artist-in-residence, Evans' has been at the Nordic guest studio Malongen, making works for the show.
Peter J. Evans is interested in the nature and ideas of finite truth in an infinitely changeable universe and works with drawing, sculpture, installation, performance and sound in an attempt to make sense of the ungraspable realities we live within. A specialist in non-specialism he has been making art, music and other constructions since 1992. Fascinated by systems and patterns, Evans’ artistic process is a meditative investigation into reality and the stories underneath the everyday surface of things. The lines in his drawings operating as metaphorical maps that mark out and describe interactions between objects, atoms, emotions and places. Each line both is and represents, a path that has been travelled and the changes which occurred during the journey.
The interest in what lies beneath the everyday surface of things, the patterns in the chaos and the small moments that shift one’s whole being continue to pull on the hand and the mind. The practice keeps shifting and flowing along with everything else as decay and renewal endlessly progress as the seconds tick past. Making work is just another way of trying to make sense of what all this might be about
Peter J Evans was born in 1976 in Oxford, U.K. and lives and works in Newcastle upon Tyne. He attended Dartington College of Arts from 1995-1998 earning a BA (Hons) in Visual Performance, later gaining an MRes in Digital Media from Newcastle University between 2008-2010.
