eyesontheedge: A mixed-media exhibition by Franklin Evans opens at Sue Scott Gallery


NEW YORK, NY.- Sue Scott Gallery announces eyesontheedge, a mixed-media exhibition by Franklin Evans opening March 2, 2012 and running through April 15, 2012. Evans examines the processes of making art — the generation of ideas and materials, their transformation from one to the other, and the many varied states in between. For this exhibition, he will present paintings, sculptures, photographs, and a sound piece in an all-encompassing environment. The wall paintings and collage environments of past installations, such as timecompressionmachine from Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1, have been collapsed by the artist and transferred to the surface of large-scale canvases. Mundane materials such as artist’s tape that previously played a key role as a barrier, frame, and drawing tool, are carefully recreated as trompe l’oeil representations, as the use of actual tape in the final compositions diminishes.
