KATLIN EVANS

July 19th - August 30th   2014

 

Katlin Evans' work takes shape in the form of drawings of everyday objects that carry a ubiquitous weight of experience. Her intension is to convey these objects (i.e. Christmas lights, boxes, needles etc.) in a way that reads as an unfolding experience to the viewer, where the object is recognizable yet hard to identify.

The work relies on the intensity of emotive obsession, one where ‘time’ is a major player. She recently made a drawing of 1,134 sewing needles. In the process, Evans calculated she could draw 200 sewing needles in 7 hours. The result was a ‘swarm’ like cloud of overlapping sewing needles.  This obsessive quality is, to her, simultaneously absurd and meditative. These contradictions represent the conflict related to daily living while also acting as a signifier to the passing of time.

Evans is currently an MFA candidate and will be graduating in Spring 2014.
