This piece is from Evan's October 2023 collection, Edge of the Familiar. "Through my painting practice I am exploring the personal and historical archives of abstraction as it extends beyond the Western canon’s narrow description. Within this context, this body of work is focusing on the edges of abstraction as it interacts with the representational, providing context and influencing the other. The line between the tangible and intangible is hardly stark or well defined, and consequently endlessly generative. The possibilities of abstraction are as vast and varied as culture, lived experience, and perception itself; actively calling to our collective desire to understand and be understood."
