Mary Evans


Using brown paper as her main material, Mary Evans' evocative site-specific installations reflect on the impact of tragic and brutal moments in history. Her cut-out silhouettes build on the classical tradition of portraiture to question ideas around representation, cultural change and globalisation.

Evans studied at Goldsmiths and the Rijksakademie and has been a recipient of the Arts and Literary Arts Residency at the Rockefeller Foundation and the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Washington DC, USA. Recent exhibitions include EVA - Ireland's Biennial (2016), Southbank Centre, London (2014), Blaffer Art Museum, Houston (2013), University of Massachusetts (2013, and Meditations, her solo exhibition at Baltimore Museum of Art (2008).
