Evelyn Polk

Evelyn graduated from the Cambridge school of Art with a first class honors degree in Fine Art/Printmaking and has exhibited at numerous exhibitions nationally. She is a full time artist and works from her studio in Bury St Edmunds. She taught art & design, photography at secondary school for thirteen years and now teaches printmaking classes and courses in her studio - Bury St Edmunds Print Workshop.

Her work is centered around the found object, but this also overlaps with notions of excavation and the land. Acting like a mediator, selecting and presenting items for the consideration of the viewer. Her process is dictated by the objects/materials/shapes she finds and this is where she finds inspiration which informs the journey of creating, abstracting forms and shapes. Museums are a strong influence as museums can live in our drawers, cupboards and imaginations, awaiting their moment of arrival. Printmaking is a prominent factor in her work which is often thought to be a very traditional medium and she tries to push the boundaries of printmaking to a new refreshing approach. This discipline is sometimes collaged and mixed with painting/drawing/sewing/assemblage. The desire to truly understand our relationship with objects through a cross disciplinary approach is her focus as an artist.
