ARTIST OF THE WEEK: EVAN BOGGESS

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Evan Boggess is a painter working primarily in mixed media. He is a 2011 MFA graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Evan Boggess’ work blends traditional painting and dimensionality in what he calls a “problematic yet harmonious image.” By allowing his works to sometimes bleed off the canvas/board onto the wall, floor or space, Boggess is able to provoke the established notion of painting – which is either on the wall or on a ‘canvas,’ not typically both. I also like the way Boggess is able to blend different painting styles in one composition. In one work you can find soft almost cloudy scapes of paint mixed with harsh lines, shapes and colors.
