Simon Evans | Artist

Simon Evans was born in London in 1972. He now lives and works in Berlin. I encountered his work via brief mention on It’s Nice That earlier this week. Evans work combines drawing, collage, and sometimes more to articulate feelings of loneliness and isolation. His is work born from memory of home, and work fueled as well with some spot on humor. Intricate and engrossing, Evans is quite frankly a joy. He is represented by James Cohen Gallery.

As example, Symptoms of Loneliness (2009) of pen, paper, scotch tape and correction fluid is seen above.

A few more of Evans’ works after the jump.
