About Darrell Evanes

The concepts behind Darrell Evanes sculpture
Darrell's highly collectable and original sculptures are fashioned from scrap metals. He is fascinated by the materials - what they once were and what they can become in his hands. Evanes believes that in resurrecting the metals he is creating continuity and that his work forms a bridge between the present and the past. The concept of time is central to his compositions which often feature chains to symbolise the link between different eras.
The semi-abstract forms explore both time and space. Fragments of metal capture fragments of time in sculptures which are incredibly detailed and strikingly beautiful. They are not intended to precisely reflect reality but rather to invite exploration, provoke thought, and inspire an appreciation of life.
Darrell Evanes explores how we perceive the nature of space and time and how our perceptions are dictated by what we can see and by what we cannot. He imbues his artwork with the energy and the pull of gravity that we cannot visualise but that we know exists. Thus, each work boasts exceptional vitality and power. His sculptures are both visually stimulating and exceptionally spiritual.
