Evan Heasman

12/07/13 - 17/08/13 Opening: Preview evening Friday 12th July 2013

Evan Heasman is exhibiting new work exploring the human condition at Hangar Gallery in Kamo. Evan’s show is a collection of artworks on vintage book covers. His fascination for the aged nature of the materials has provided a catalyst for a series of intimate and thoughtful caricature pieces. Evan’s playful imagery is finely manicured, combining painting with delicate ripped collage.
Inspiration is sought from fairytales, mythological creatures and Lemony Snickett type characters to bring forth a new generation of hero’s, heroines and victims.
Evans art is ironically gothic and identifies with the naive and comic book in the same breath. Cleverly accomplished dark, emphatic, disturbing yet engaging imagery cements his reputation as a collectable practitioner in Whangarei. Along side his activities collaborators have transformed his illustrations into moving pictures. Camilla Rosenkrans Jensen a soft sculpture artist has recreated a selection of Evan’s characters into 3D crochet sculpture which will also feature in the exhibition.
Evan’s work has been published in contemporary magazines, books and websites.
