James Evans

James Evans creates biomorphic ceramic sculptures that are composed of a collision of qualities, ones not usually encountered within a single form. Often constructed from both ceramic and metallic materials, the fired clay is encased within a smooth crust of gleaming gold, tarnished copper and rusting iron. The works are ambiguously organic and inorganic, seemingly soft but also hard, a curious amalgamation of human flesh, geological specimen and myriad other natural and man-made qualities.

Evans first studied ceramics at the Central School of Art and Design in London during the 1980s, then undertook an MA in Fine Arts at the University of Colorado. He has taken part in numerous group shows, including; Award at Potteries Museum & Art Gallery (2011), Stoke-on-Trent; Atlantic Crossings at the Barbican Art Gallery (1998), Ripe at the Crafts Council (2000) and COLLECT (2003, 2004 and 2006). Solo exhibitions include; Abugation, Marsden Woo Project Space (2012); Galerie Sandra Buergel (2007); Plaisantin at Cosa Gallery, London (2005) and Hypoplastic at Midlands Art Centre, Birmingham (2002). He was short listed for the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize in 2001 and an Arts Foundation Fellowship in 2004. His work is also represented in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
