Using materials ranging from construction paper to gingerbread cookies, London-based artist Mary Evans takes imagery from popular culture and transforms it into “visual Esperanto”—universally understandable symbols about human experience. Her work is grounded in research on the relationship between contemporary Britain and its imperial past in Africa. Through sculptures and installation, Evans composes narratives based on her experience growing up in England and the difficulty of maintaining her African heritage. Each handcrafted artwork addresses the tenuous relationship between alienation and belonging, and examines how these feelings shape cultural identities.
