‘Metal in Motion’ – Sculpture by Tony Evans
14 September – 16 October 2009
dot-art is delighted to be hosting a collection of sculptural works and drawings by the celebrated local artist Tony Evans. He is perhaps best known for his piece Inspiration, a huge winged horse commissioned by Liverpool Community College for their Myrtle Street centre in December 2008.
Tony specialises in animals in action using mainly copper and bronze (often recycled) and the work is a result of hours of intense concentration and physical effort. His portrayals of nature capture the spirit and the splendour of a whole menagerie of animals ranging from the simplicity of a frog to the magnificence of a life size Bengal tiger.
Born and raised in Liverpool, Tony worked for The Prudential for over 30 years before he turned to his long suppressed passion for art. At age 55 he attended Liverpool Community College where he achieved GCSE and A Levels and subsequently emerged from Wirral Metropolitan College aged 58 with a B.A. Honours Degree in Fine Art.
Since then, the artist has enjoyed huge success, with work on permanent display at The Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport and in many private collections. As well as successful local and national exhibitions, he has also been awarded a number of high profile commissions.
All work is for sale. Admission is free.
