Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism focuses on an American artist who has attracted a worldwide core of collectors and whose approach to furniture-making defied traditional notions of craftsmanship. Creating furniture as sculpture, defined by abstract composition, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) consistently pushed boundaries with his innovative approaches to metal work and furniture-making, his designs revealing the fascinating juxtaposition of sculpture and design.
