Work Overview

Acrylic painting on canvas.

While in Stockholm for my solo exhibit, I became fascinated by the water, bridges and light. I loved how the rippling night-time river constantly changed the shapes of city lights reflecting from the water.  The effect was quietly dazzling, moody and beautifully abstract.

His subject is Chinese text. He creates optically baffling renderings of the texts seemingly inscribed into (rather than onto) fluttering or crumpled tablets,papers or cloth. Creating visually stunning masterpieces. Evans has always been attracted to both illusion and abstraction in painting and enjoys the challenge of combining both qualities into his paintings.
