"When an artist deeply studies and obsesses over a subject, it starts to develop a life of its own and in this case a familiarity. We know Evans; lily pads and seascapes, but with time they are being fine-tuned and redacted. In that space, there is freedom that relies less on representation and more on gesture. He gives our eyes a space to land, rest even."
- Katy Diamond Hamer
Gallery Henoch is pleased to announce "Familiar Friends," a selection of recent works by John Evans, presenting a range of paintings that capture the essence of his New England aesthetic. It will run from May 4 - 27, 2023. A public reception will be held Thursday, May 4, from 6 - 8 pm.
The exhibition features seascapes, bodies of water, boats, and water lilies, all depicting sites the artist has visited repeatedly over many years, which have become like old acquaintances.
