Evan Hecox "The Long Way" @ Joshua Liner Gallery, NYC

Feb 09, 2017 - Mar 11, 2017Joshua Liner Gallery, New York City

Evan Hecox's The Long Way at Joshua Liner Gallery features fifteen new works on paper inspired by a recent road trip through the Southwestern region of the United States.

There are few artists who have navigated the world from skate graphics, collage, and painting into abstraction quite like Denver-based Evan Hecox. His earliest works for Chocolate Skateboards were a fresh twist on skate graphics, and showed Hecox’s unique eye for transforming urban life into art.

A new series, four works on paper based on recent trips to Costa Rica (seen here), are perfect examples of his evolution and continued exploration into perfecting the use of color and shape. His last one-man show at Joshua Liner in 2015 experimented with typography, and his newest solo exhibition at the NYC gallery will once again push the boundaries among graphic-based fine art, landscape and minimalism.

Opening reception: Thursday, February 9th, 2017.
