Paul Evans, Verdigris Copper Loop Hanging Console, USA, c.1965
The Verdigris Copper Loop Hanging Console features a two-door wood cabinet sheathed in copper sheets with an applied green patina. The cleft slate top is typical in Evan’s works from this period. Predating Evan’s celebrated Patchwork Series (often referred to as Copper, Bronze and Pewter) the Verdigris Copper Loop Series are the earliest examples of Evans’ use of sheet metals in a collaged application. This technique would evolve into the Patchwork Series and eventually the Cityscape Series. Very few pieces were done in the rich green Verdigris patina making this charming console rare and highly collectible. Copper loops and coin clusters made from copper sheeting give the doors a playful, decorative quality, unique to the period.
