John Evans’s landscapes seek to emulate the firsthand experience of being in a landscape, rather than recreating it. Through mottled paint and irregular depths, he draws the viewer in to reveal landscapes that allude to a greater natural order, with representational elements merging into abstract passages. Evans favors aquatic landscapes—ponds not unlike Monet’s—for their fluidity and power to transform. He studied under Philip Guston, though his angular, geometric forms recall Cézanne.
