Constance Evans today lives and works in White Plains, N.Y., where she produces her brilliantly pigmented prints. Her works display rhythmic patterns in high-contrast colors: clouds billow over hillsides, leaves are silhouetted against sunset streaked skies.
“Attracted to the drama of ever-changing skies and rhythmic patterns on the ground, hills and streets, her work reflects a lifelong passion for visual textures in the surrounding world,” says Wendy Nylen, whose gallery is preparing to show Evans’ work.
Constance uses a camera much as she would a sketchbook, building on abstract underpinnings. She brings the viewer out far in a wide-angle scene or up close in tiny details. Constance creates vibrancy and at the same time evokes an atmosphere of quiet reflection.
Ms. Evans previously served as executive director of both the Weir Farm Trust in Wilton, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and most recently as CEO of the Advertising Photographers of America. Each final piece is printed on acid-free fine art paper using archival pigment inks, typically in an edition of twenty-five.
“Photographic Images,” Prints by Constance Evans, opens with a reception 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 23 and runs through Saturday, May 7.
