BIO

hailing from the swamps and tundra of Racine Wisconsin, Evan's diverse works reflect symbolic discovery and the mastery of theoretical landscapes.  Envisioning Frontier  worlds where primitive skills are still needed and are won from native guides and hardship.  Worlds Where Nature rises up to reflect reverence and resist incursion.  With a style informed by his own gathering of these skills, his works, from paintings and  sculpture, assemblage, to music and film, act as a map for adventuring through his, and our world.  After 15 years honing artistic fabrication and team leading skills as a production designer, his work has evolved into vast interdisciplinary art and reenactment events the "settlements", and now Belief system creation with his Project "Time Tomb".  Currently living in Los angeles His events are the subject of the upcoming documentary "the settlement" Featured in the Rain-dance Film Festival London.
