Journeys by Edward Evans
” I call these new paintings “journeys.” They are journeys for those who think and feel as I do. They are journeys that move our eyes across and into and out of the spaces that I painted. They have more in common with my 70′s and 80′s paintings than with what I painted during the 90′s. While relating to earlier work, they have become more developed, more complex, richer. This has happened because I have lived longer and experienced more. A constant in my work is abstraction combined with a taste for fully resolved paintings. I am interested in formal elements. Shapes, colors, and surface treatments lead our eyes across, over and into and out of the depths of the surface. Abstract shapes and colors blend with feelings and memories. Memories of past experiences are also rekindled – such as our shared journey to Sicily.” -Edward Evans.
