Jillian Evelyn's Contorted Figures

Aug 26, 2017 - Oct 01, 2017Artist Republic Gallery, Anaheim

On Saturday, August 26th, Artist Republic Gallery in Anaheim, CA will be opening Solitary, a solo show by the LA based artist Jillian Evelyn.

In this exhibition Evelyn plays with the female figure and emotions by contorting their bodies to fit within the constraints of the canvas. Her awkwardly posed figures are placed against colorful blocking and abstract shapes that are both grounding and distracting, as if the characters are stuck alone in their own uncomfortable headspace.

The show will be on view through October 1st, 2017.
