Released to coincide with Cerith Wyn Evans’ exhibition ‘No realm of thought… No field of vision’ at White Cube Bermondsey, London in 2020, these two black and white prints feature a circular void cut into a photograph taken by Evans.

Circles, and specifically holes, feature throughout Evans’ work, inspired by Francis Picabia’s Jeune Fille, Yoko Ono’s A Hole to See The Sky Through, and Lucio Fontana's Concetto Spaziale works.

Evans said of the works: ‘In some part, these “windows” or apertures serve to interrogate the condition of illusion – to foreground the materiality of the image. To ventilate the picture plane, leading to a view onto, say, the wall. To engage an oscillation between “figure” and “ground”, and somehow reveal, a “beyond”.’

The editions are available as a set of two or individually and sold unframed. For further information please contact editions@whitecube.com
