“Metamorphosis: Mud to Modern” New Work by Brian Evans & Dianne Evans Exhibit

Loading Events

This new exhibit “Metamorphosis: Mud to Modern” celebrates the newest creations of the 3-dimensional, ceramic work of Brian Evans and Dianne Evans. Inspired by patterns and textures, these artists marry form and design as they shape exquisite forms from mounds of clay.

Brian’s current body of work is inspired by patterns he sees on fabric, circuit boards, and in nature. His utilitarian work is minimalistic in form allowing the lines and colors to be the focus. Brian’s sculptural work reflects modern abstract designs. These structures consist of curvilinear and geometric lines and shapes that move the viewer’s eyes around the piece. Brian is intrigued by how the light and shadow interplay while painting an interesting shadow on the pedestal or wall. The shadow is different depending on the angle at which the light approaches the piece. The patinaed surfaces on his work reveal an aged or weathered look on a modern design. He finds the juxtaposition of present and past intriguing. Brian incorporates similar elements into his pottery with the intention of conveying modern designs with interesting lines and angles that draw the user’s eyes around and into the piece.

Dianne’s current work consists of minimalistic forms that make a statement on their own and act as a canvas for designs and patterns. The form dictates the design. Her surface decorations are inspired by textile patterns, shapes, repetition, layering of color and pattern, and the relationship between form and design. The shapes and patterns interact with each other, creating movement across the surface and drawing your eye around the piece. Dianne’s work is meant to bring people joy, peace and serenity through form, color, and design.
