Evans drips, carves, pours and scrapes to create complex surfaces that belie her claims to value simplicity.  Swirling deep into the picture plane or floating in ever-higher strata, serendipitous forms created by adding and removing layers interlace. Sometimes accompanied by angry mark-making or wholesale covering-up, the paintings are the projection of a maniacal mind seeking in vain to find some peace. 

Evans doesn't go far to find visual inspiration, in fact feeling nagged by the pleading nature of her unfiltered observations, distracted by the likes of sidewalk cracks, river bubbles, and accidental compositions found in laundry piles and within door frames.
