In this episode of the Wallace Arts Video Series, we visit painter Evan Woodruffe in his studio. He paints in a style he coins Baroque Abstraction as now that we exist both offline locally and online globally almost simultaneously, the baroque seems like a suitably multi-perspectival viewpoint to navigate our 21st Century existence from.
“The reason I create work is to create space to think and not just space for me to think, but also for the viewer. By conjuring up these images full of abstract marks - they become prompts for the viewer to start thinking.”
Woodruffe has been a multple finalist in the Wallace Art Awards and has a number of works in the Wallace Arts Trust Collection. To view his works in the collection please visit: https://bit.ly/2H9R7BO
