Steve Evans, ‘That Was, This Is’ August 26, 2017 Return to: Autumn at the RBSA: a packed programme of events and exhibitionsFull resolution (3600 × 3600) Image navigation Previous Image Next Image Steve Evans, 'That Was, This is' Evans' work, informed by his background in structural engineering, incorporates the techniques and formal qualities of technical drawing before the advent of CAD – qualities of precision, regimentation, the repetition of line and reference to geometry and form. Unlike CAD these works contain minute inconsistencies. These ‘flaws’ evident in the hand-drawn pieces, add qualities that make each unique. The arrangements of line create visual disturbances and illusions beyond the original formal references. They are abstractions that explore and extend pictorial space through the use of light, line and colour.
