Suburban Noir: Paintings by Bruce Evans
On some level, I am always painting. A walk in the woods, a round of golf (could explain why I'm not better), a conversation with a friend, or just staring out of the window, the door is always open for an idea that inspires the next work. Once an idea takes shape, the painting is executed with hyper-focused attention to lighting and detail, with every hair in place, every curve, and every glint of shadow exactly as nature demands. I know the work is going well if, during the process, I lose all sense of time and self. Painting is just one of many ways to communicate ideas. Some people express their imaginitive thoughts through writing, I paint.
