Alex Evans’ obsessively hand drawn geometric shapes and complex patterns manipulate established traditions of mathematical space in order to depict hybrid architectural biological systems and topologies of the imagined city.
Informed by twentieth century architectural and urban planning theories and inspired by recurring fractal configurations in nature, the resulting collection of painstakingly intricate pen and ink drawings deploy an illusory sense of scale and an unreal interplay between dimensions to manifest pristine graphic cityscapes as dense miniature networks of imagination and potentiality.
