Lot Essay

Writing in the introduction for his March 1968 Marlborough exhibition Merlyn Evans - Events and Abstractions, Evans comments 'My present paintings, as in the earlier work, are indirectly about a person, a personage, or persona; two people encountering, attracting, repelling; a group of people more rarely a proliferation, a crowd.
Visually, the concern is architectural equilibrium, presentational immediacy, or directness of optical impact for the spectator'.
