Lindsay Antrobus Evans
Lindsay Antrobus Evans is an Australian mixed media sculptor. Born in Sydney,
New South Wales, in 1953, Lindsay has resided in New Zealand, mostly in
Hokianga, since 1992.
His work investigates, through a variety of media and an indulgence in the tactility and sensuousness of the actual making, themes of transcendence desire and culpability. He often references the male condition as a starting point, evoking a universally human state and unearthing a melancholic resonance. And, more often than not, the works are rectangles with lumps.
“Wood has always been a companion for me - from my early baby days crawling around on the sprung kauri floorboards in my old familial home in Sydney, to the cherished objects that inhabit and make up my home today. This landscape, this harbour,
this river, these towns and communities are historically and psychically wedded
to trees and timber.
