Evans work was recently described “Subtle mediation beautifully rendered. There is a sense of calm throughout.”Evans is fascinated with human collective behavior and how it inevitably leads to hierarchical systems, social divisions and manipulative power. Her current body of work examines different aspects of collective behavior through drawings installations and painting. The imagery of repetitive uniform buildings are used to examine the propensity toward collective behavior.
