The White Whale is the latest solo exhibition by Nick Evans. Known for his organically shaped white plaster sculptures, this work is inspired by the Gothic architecture of The McManus and the museum collections within. The interplay between visitor, sculpture, decorative elements and the stunning architecture of the gallery combine to create an immersive artwork.
Evans was born in Mufulira in Zambia, brought up in Somerset and now lives and works in Glasgow. This background has given him an international outlook which informs his work. He is fascinated by the art and artefacts of other cultures - particularly studying the various materials used and methods of construction. From these original sources and his knowledge of European art history, he creates his distinctive and original sculptural forms.
