Description Commissioned directly from the Evans Studio by a Michigan collector, this Argente Console is one of the most breathtaking examples of Evans’ scrafitto imagery in the Argente style. The complex patterning, both highly graphic and increasingly dynamic, exemplifies the exuberant concept of an “all-over” composition most famously achieved by Abstract Expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly, and Mark Tobey.

The console features a honed slate top. Four bi-fold doors open to a striated red interior with adjustable shelves.

In 1968 Directional debuted their first line of Argente pieces based on preset designs (like these cabinets), which differed from the bespoke Paul Evans Studio pieces that were commissioned through a collaborative process with the client.

With both his Studio works and Directional line, Evans sustained complete creative and quality control by personally overseeing his loyal production team and refusing to outsource labor.
