Darrell Evanes uses recycled metals in his sculptures to create semi-abstract shapes and forms, these suggest lines within space. The concept of fragments in time is central to his work; the history of what once was and is no more. Chains are often found within the artist’s sculptures, linking past to present. The chains are our bond between space and gravity.
Becaus...e Darrell’s work does not intend to reflect a natural appearance, it is not an escape from life but a penetration into reality; an expression of the significance of life, a stimulation to greater effort in living. Darrell was born in 1965 in Leeds and later moved to Harrogate. It was here where he studied a BTEC National in Art & Design at Harrogate College 1990–1992. Afterwards, Evanes would go on to study at Bretton Hall Leeds and complete a degree in Fine Art.
Darrell has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show, and has sculptures featured in The Ingram Collection and The Lightbox.
