Biography

India Evans sees the scraps of fabric, flowers, feathers, beads, and other materials that comprise her collages “as a vocabulary of feelings.” Incorporating forgotten, seemingly worthless remnants of a woman’s universe, she creates romantic and playful portraits of female identity. Evans intends viewers to “explore their childhood innocence and fantasies through their adult nostalgia and sensuality,” and draws inspiration from antique photos and postcards of female nudes. Adding another layer to her whimsical collages, she often stitches and glues bits of original, surrealistic poetry in a stylized script that echoes the curvy letters of Joan Miró—the result is a visual narrative of memories and dreams.
