    ARK X2

    The ARK series strays from Evan’s other work in material: rather than spray acrylic on concrete, these shapes of the alphabet are gouache on paper (with Evan’s signature layer of soot, or course.) Planes of soot (collected directly from smoke onto surface) and color are carefully arranged to represent the letters X, M, and W, remixing the most angular members of the alphabet.

    Works in East Williamsburg

    Evan works from his studio in East Williamsburg, the back wall neatly lined with tools and the slightly sour smell of wood in the air. Considering his sculpture and design background, his command of unusual materials like soot residue, concrete, and spray doesn’t come as a surprise. But you may be surprised when his minimal, even digital looking, compositions start to unfold in poetic layers-- “bracing practice” indeed.You’ll love Evan if you: Throw out those “haha-hmm” one-liners that make your friends question their lives for days after.
