Evan Nesbit’s paintings expand his process of rendering space and depth through illusionistic visual cues, forming works inserted between the boundaries of experience and reality. Evan Nesbit uses pattern, color and material relationships to challenge the pictorial space of painting's modes of perception; here, painting is an attempt through material and process to capture space and light in estranged recognition. This new series continues Nesbit’s interest in material based abstraction and concepts of perceptual psychology. As with his earlier burlap paintings, the surface inversions derived from the paint pushed through the weave activates the shifting relationship between form and image. Though now there is a different kind of mark as well as a different surface quality: one that is at once physical and digital, via the substrate paint and the digitally printed photographs serving as the base.
