David Evans The Sacred Landscape

27 May – 1 July 2017

By Peter Riley, curator of the Young Gallery

The Young Gallery in Salisbury is pleased to host an important exhibition of David Evan’s (1929-1988) artwork.

The exhibition will run from 27 May – 1 July. Courtesy of Liss Llewellyn Fine Art. With a book launch and special view on the 25 May 6-8 pm to promote the first ever book on an exceptional British watercolourist who captured the period charm of the glam -rock era and shifting political landscape of Thatcher’s Britain.

At the heart of the Young Galleries permanent collection are works on paper with a focus on watercolours and landscape.

Evans work rooted in the 70s and 80s provides a unique take on the changes in art and society. Using the traditional medium of watercolour and collage, he offers the viewer a different perspective on late 20th century contemporary society, often perceptive and unsettling.

The Sacred Landscape draws our attention to the impact of men and machines on the terrain; not romantic, but fragile and vulnerable. He presents us with compositions that are in many regards surreal; propagated through his love of music and his heightened concerns about the environment and humanity. Amid colour, selective images, an internal and aerial perspective, he reveals a dreamlike world, full of conflicting demands, no longer respected, but exploited, potentially dark and worrying.

This exhibition provides a unique relevant spotlight on life, well worth seeing.
