Provenance: The Artist's Studio


Evans was an ardent campaigner and environmentalist. His landscapes mirror a country-side in flux, moving from traditional small holdings to the large open fields created by modern farming methods. His compositions are often unpopulated - alternatively they are  occupied variously by  farmers,  soldiers, workmen,  and  the  occasional  rambler. 


When in his native Suffolk, activities around Potash Farm (where he lived from 1969 onwards), provided a wealth of subjects: Potash Garden (1978); Cabbage Pickers (1981-20; Flower Garden (1981-2); The Allotment (1986); Crown Imperial (1988); Geraniums (1981-2); Gladioli, Daffodils (1986); Irises; Apples (1986); Pumpkins (1986);The Marrow Family; Cabbages; Cows Come Home (1981); Friesians; Cows XII; Piglets; Seagulls; Tour d’Anglia; Suffolk Scrap; Ruralia Mddx; Wessex; Suffolk Landscape (1979); Ipswich.
