John Evans Gallery

In the November 2009 issue of American Artist, we featured artist John Evans, whose evocative and compelling oil paintings emerge from a long process of struggle, overpainting, layering, sanding, and soul-searching. Here, we feature additional images from the artist we were unable to fit in the print magazine.

  1. John,
    I love the peaceful quality you achieve with your paintings. Looking at them brings me a feeling of deep serenity. I especially like “Beach with Moon and Heavens” which has an alomost spiritual quality. Beautiful work!

  2. I think the careful design, pre-planning and hours or improvised exicution of these paintings results in such a calming and planned for effect. Regrets I do not have the energy for pre-planning and need to get right to work – but how I admire and am in awe of those who can. Beautiful.

  3. I hop products my Wall sculpture art (or sell it).
    Wall sculpturing art is a subject to fixed standards and measurements but here our artist has another imagination where he used thickness not exceed than one centimeter with different width and heights.
    Here creativity appears because it transmits the viewer to a live wall sculpturing through the reflected light on work, so it gives unreal deepness (sight Illusion).
    The artist used this new technique that was originated by nature since 1982 in his earliest shape until it reached spontaneously to what it is now.
