    Before Writing This I Asked A Librarian (Dark Mode 1)

    Evan Ishmael uses the unconventional concrete as a surface to apply his signature soot and spray acrylic. In the Before Writing This I Asked a Librarian pairing, the book opens, the seam at the center indicated by the direction of the soot. This work, together with Two Books Suggested and Have Your Heart Examined, are linked by the color coordination of the first of each pair to each other and the second of each pair to themselves.

    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.
