Franklin Evans, Studio View (video still from Gorky's Granddaughter, courtesy of the artist)
Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting visit the studio of Franklin Evans. Evans discusses multiple elements of his art practice including abstract painting, trompe l'oeil, collage, and installation, and sound works. The video includes a sample of one of Evans' sound pieces playing while the camera pans the studio.
Evans' exhibition eyesontheedge was recently on view at Sue Scott Gallery.
Petersen remarks: "my work does not 'abstract' from nature, it is just that all these things are in you and if you are in touch with these memories they do come out in the work... [My compositions] are intuitive. I start with a line, with certain ideas or feelings in my head, and work from there. Things start to happen and I think that process is reflected in the work. Humor and contradiction are all a part of it."
Matt Jones interviews painter Kadar Brock about his work and practice.
Brock comments: "I don't think about the body in a direct or traditional sense, but... they are very physical paintings. I make them laying on top of them, pushing into them, scraping away at them, sanding them and so on. And I touch them, a lot. I think a lot about paintings as hugs, as points of empathy. This probably sounds very sappy, but it ties into... a sense of reassurance almost, that I hope to give a viewer with the work. And that's a very physical sensation."
