Jake Wood-Evans

b. 1980, Devon, UK. Jake Wood-Evans is a Lewes, East Sussex-based artist whose work is a manifestation of his complex relationship with British art history. At once haunting and seductive; evocative and familiar, Wood-Evans’ oeuvre resists a definitive interpretation. 18th-century figures appear as apparitions, wreathed in gossamer oils they peer out from linen canvases: faceless, ghoulish memories of an imperial past.
