PETER EVANS

B. 1979

Peter is a multidisciplinary artist from London, currently living and working in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
 

"My practice begins with the collecting of found objects and materials, items from the streets or private spaces that can be reworked and presented in new often abstract forms.


Taking inspiration from the passed over spaces of the everyday, routine behaviour and the familiarity of the habitual, my work celebrates the aspects of life that might be hiding in plain sight: overheard snippets of conversation, discarded National Lottery scratchcards and disused food crates, have all been taken and repurposed to allow the viewer space for a new interpretation of an ordinary world.


It's the things we walk past everyday unnoticed, the unremarkable sides of our existence that I celebrate and bring to the fore in a new conception; postcards are dissected and re-presented in book form; a ripped billboard poster is turned into an abstract collage; and a vessel for food becomes a surface for the minimalist." - Peter Evans
