Paul Evans’ technically intensive Argente Series, which was produced from 1967 through the 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. This impressive console, dated 1967, is one of the earliest works in the Argente Series, perfectly encapsulating Evan’s penchant for experimental processes to achieve a new vision in metalworking.
