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.
Evans’ show “Tree. Lingam. Void” is currently on view.
