Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.

SEEN has always admired Alex Evans’ evocations of London; particularly when much of the centre of it seems to be reinventing itself constantly.

Alex Evans: The Urban Geometrist

SEEN recently had the pleasure of seeing Alex Evans’ intricate cityscapes – and of meeting the artist himself – and we were immediately struck by the timeless nature of his work. Alex creates his architectural subjects by hand, demonstrating a breathtaking mastery of his technique and a profound recognition of the illusory nature of how we see the cities we live in – it’s never quite as we imagine it.
