Paul Evans Argente Cube Table
Paul Evans’ technically intensive Argente Series, which was produced from 1967 through 1972, was an experimental process using 1/8 inch thick aluminum sheets. Blackened with ink, the aluminum was then sanded, buffed, textured with a torch, and scratched to produce unique sgraffito markings. Because of the toxic fumes produced when welding aluminum, the Argente line was short-lived, making pieces in this style exceedingly rare and highly sought after. Each piece perfectly encapsulates Evans’ penchant for experimental processes to achieve a new vision in metalworking.
Performer Lenny Kravitz, a collector of Evans pieces, describes his distinctive work as “stunningly beautiful, stunningly ugly, stunningly tacky, [and] stunningly sophisticated.”
