Carwyn Evans

A Grand View
King’s Road, SA1
Taking inspiration from a carved ‘double picture frame’ in the Swansea Museum collection, delicately created by a seaman from interlocking pieces of carved wood, Carwyn Evans has constructed a series of house-like facades that replicate a simple cross-hatched drawing.

The facades become iconic in aesthetic against the backdrop of new apartment blocks of SA1 and stand as a ghost-like reminder of Swansea’s industrial past but also suggestive of its new status as a changing, evolving city.
