“Mythos” is an new art show at Chez Poulet Gallery featuring 25 surreal intaglio prints and paintings by Kevin Evans. The show opens this Thursday, September 27th 8-10pm and will feature a special screening of the silent film The Call of Cthulhu based on the story by H.P. Lovecraft.
My imagery is a concoction of influence from the natural concealed world, instinct, and the cavernous depths of imagination and subconscious. The process is a provoking push and pull journey within medium and self with sporadic introductions of chaos to ensure an unpredictable voyage towards the concluding outcome. When working, I investigate the interior terrain favoring an existence within a silent emblematic space. I deposit symbols, characters, and texture -following an intuitive voice leading to unanticipated and surprising consequences. The creation first begins as a sequence of visual ramblings in sketchbook. Intermittently, unsystematic rudiments and marks of disorder are introduced; on occasion regions destroyed or erased acting as a reaction trigger. It’s a procedure of embracing an atmosphere of unpredictability and Memento Mori. When the illustration has attained a condition of termination, it is then transmitted to canvass, panel, or printed in the intaglio method or other, varied mediums.
