The Gulls [Tudor Evans]
Tudor Evans creates surreal collages from otherwise forgotten original 19th century engravings. Using traditional cut and paste methods, involving scissors and a scalpel, he painstakingly constructs his weird masterpieces.
Many of his works reflect on contemporary society and explore themes such as imperialism, dystopia, and gender roles.
In this particular piece, which is entitled “The Gulls”, a flock of birds (individually cut out) are baying at an exhausted female in Victorian attire. At the window, to her left, two slightly ominous-looking owls peer inside.
