Toilet roll gallery

In the early days of the coronavirus lockdown toilet rolls became scarce. The problem later eased. With the help of empty rolls from her own house and generous gifts from others, Carys started to paint – birds, insects, toys and other subjects – on their surface. She made one painting every day, and now her collection of contemporary arte povera is complete. This work makes up, to some extent, for the cancellation of the Taith ‘House of Early Delights’ show at this year’s Laugharne Festival, itself a victim of the virus.

The toilet rolls are now part of the ‘Covid art’ collection of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales.

Friends of the Glynn Vivian Newsletter, Spring 2021

Carys and the toilet rolls were featured on S4C’s magazine programme, Heno, on Friday 29 May 2020, and in the Western Mail on Saturday 4 July 2020:


‘Ar y cyfryngau cymdeithasol … gwelais waith artist o Abertawe, Carys Evans, a dreuliodd yr wythnosau diwethaf yn peintio lliniau adar a blodau ar diwbiau cardbord papur tŷ bach. Maen nhw’n gain i ryfeddu, yn ffurfio rhesaid hyfryd ar oriel ei silff ben tân, yn tyfu dim ond pan fo’r deunydd crai, eu cynfasau dinod, ar gael.

Mae hi’n ysbrydoli.’
