The duo has been together for over a decade. Together they bring a whole new work of perspectives, sizes, and shapes.
Always looking for a synergy between materials and compositions. a wealth of materials to explore the possibilities of sculpture, their work responds to themes that are vital to its production today, including entropy, the relationship between ecologies and the body, the virtual and the real, and the meeting point of craft and technology. In another new series, blown glass sculptures are pushed to their material limits with the external forces of gravity and the artists’ own collaborative decision-making playing a leading hand in the final form. The resulting coloured vessels are displayed with their opening—the blowhole used to make them—at their base. Filled with plant life, the sculptures become a quasi-ecological experiment giving the fragility, decay and concern for entropy that underpins Crabtree and Evans’ work a new level of visibility.
Julia Crabtree graduated with an MA from Slade School of Fine Art in 2013. She is a practising artist who collaborates exclusively with William Evans. Their work is interested in the sculptural transformation of material both in physical and virtual space. They have undertaken residencies at South London Gallery, Wysing Arts Centre and recently at the Banff Centre, Canada. They have exhibited nationally and internationally, including at Auto-Italia, Modern Art Oxford and Tate Modern.
Crabtree and Evans were the recipients of the Nina Stewart Residency award at South London Gallery, the Mary Hofsetter Legacy Scholarship for the New Materiality residency at the Banff Centre, Canada, and are Wysing Arts Centre, residency alumni.
