" Internationally recognised for his unique residential furniture, his enthusiastic and pioneering embrace of new technology and his challenging use of new materials, this is a comprehensive collection and critical analysis of Paul Evans' work. "
" Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism focuses on an American artist who has attracted a worldwide core of collectors and whose approach to furniture-making defied traditional notions of craftsmanship. Creating furniture as sculpture, defined by abstract composition, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) consistently pushed boundaries with his innovative approaches to metal work and furniture-making, his designs revealing the fascinating juxtaposition of sculpture and design.
Constantly experimenting with traditional and synthetic materials while also borrowing techniques from industrial manufacturing, Evans and his shop workers invested their furniture with an expressiveness that is quite distinctive in the realms of traditional craft and design. "
