First ever monograph on innovative artist Garth Evans published by Philip Wilson Publishers
Garth Evans is a sculptor as capable of evoking intimacy and simplicity as he is of dealing with the monumental and the timeless.
LONDON.- Featuring an extensive interview with Garth Evans and splendidly illustrated throughout with full colour images of his varied work, this is the first ever monograph on this innovative artist, and sheds new light on his place within the last few decades of British sculpture.

Garth Evans is a sculptor as capable of evoking intimacy and simplicity as he is of dealing with the monumental and the timeless. This complete survey of his unique career is long overdue, and reveals a wealth of innovative and powerful work, much of it previously unseen in print. As narratives of British sculpture are reconsidered, Evans is emerging as one of the most creative and influential artists to bridge the generation of Antony Caro and Philip King with that of Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Alison Wilding and Bill Woodrow. This investigation into Evans’s hugely varied, visually eventful and challenging practice explores connections across geographies and timeframes as well as contextualizing major changes and new departures in his work.

Garth Evans was born in Manchester in 1934 and settled in the USA at the midpoint of his career. He has exhibited widely in Europe and America since the early 1960s, and his work is represented in major public and private collections in Australia, Brazil, Portugal, USA and UK (including the Arts Council Collection, Leeds City Art Galleries, the British Museum, the V&A and Tate). Evans has been the recipient of numerous awards as well as holding a number of distinguished teaching positions. Since 1988, he has taught at the Studio School in New York City where he is head of sculpture.

Ann Compton (ed.) is the originator and Project Director of the digital research project, Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland 1851-1951 (sculpture.gla.ac.uk). She has written widely on British painting and sculpture, particularly of the twentieth century, and her publications include The Sculpture of Charles Sargeant Jagger (2004). She is an Honorary Fellow in the School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow and a Visiting Scholar at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Prior to moving into research, Compton worked as a curator at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, the Imperial War Museum, London, and University of Liverpool.
