Stephen W Evans
Themes that run throughout Evans’s work are fear, faith, doubt, and death. Most of the works come from his personal experiences as intertwined with bits and pieces of culture (film, literature, paintings), and take a somewhat subliminal approach in their picturing. Things Evans ask himself are, Who am I, where have I come from, what am I doing with this brush in my hand, what am I afraid of, what was that feeling, what was that place and is it more real to me now that I have painted it? These questions tend to permeate his work, and inform the ways he feels he has experienced life and death as a unified and encapsulated event.
