Inspiration of the day-Now Be Here: Nancy Evans

Now Be Here: Nancy Evans #48

Feeling inspired after attending the historic event Now Be Here at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. My goal is to feature every artist that attended, one artist a day. Considering the number of artists that showed up, this will take me two years to complete. I am looking forward to getting to know the work of each and every artist!

Your inspiration for the day- Now Be Here edition: Nancy Evans


From Jason Vass Gallery:

Nancy Evans is an established artist and fixture of LA’s contemporary art scene since the 90s. Evans has been producing experimental work across a variety of media for 40 years. Evans is fascinated by the aniconic symbols and universally shared archetypes that persist throughout the world’s diverse religions and imaginaries. Inspired by her world travels, most notably her time spent in India, Evans is drawn to the symbology of myth and ritual in spiritual practices and theology, and the persistence of its shared visual metaphors across cultures. Most well-known for her sculptures in bronze and aqua resin, Evans also creates mixed-media works in painting, paper, and textiles.
