Evan is an Artist based in Atlanta, GA. She received her M.F.A from the School of The Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts in Boston, MA, and my B.F.A from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. I work in painting, drawing, installation, and ceramics.
Her work discusses the processes of healing spiritually, mentally, and bodily; based in my own experience with healing and recovery. She wants her work to be empathetic, relational, and experiential. When looking at these works and experiencing the installations, her desire is for viewers to consider their own bodies and their own experiences with healing. She works with ideas of interconnectivity, multiplicities, and notions regarding the construction and archiving of memory. Her work talks about complex emotional and physical processes, but still remains hopeful and accessible.
