Evan explains his work by saying, “Transforming ethereal, organic, mechanical and geometrical imagery into visual metaphors, I create with the intentions of transforming the familiar world into one of wonder. I attempt to depict the inconceivable, manifest the immeasurable, and tether the infinite. Creatures are invented, environments fabricated and planets are birthed; the microscopic commingles with universal scales. I envision my work to make physical the meta-physical, and to de-mystify the mystical. My aim is to translate invisible mysteries into corporeal realities while creating a visual universe that references nothing in a complete departure from actuality.”
