Evan Schwartz Art
My work embodies a 'worlds-within-worlds' effect through mysterious detail and a dense menagerie of both hidden and exposed images. The more viewers engage with the paintings the more they will discover. My artwork is divided amongst three main bodies of work: Through my Eyes, Other Worlds, and Who We are.
In 'Through My Eyes' the viewer will find artwork that confronts what I feel are urgent issues in America. The prevailing subjects in these artworks are imperialism, the epidemic of gun violence, and strategic oppression of the lower class in addition to racism, drug addiction, police brutality, and the role of the media in shaping our perceptions. Many of these artworks are reinterpretations of classic American paintings and photographs that stretch from the Civil War to the late Twentieth Century. Art is enjoyed on many levels, personally, I like it when an artwork can spark a conversation-these artworks seek to do just that.
Other Worlds gather together visual dream-like fairy tales. The first four off er the viewer a glimpse of a post-human Brooklyn where gardens and the creatures that live in them thrive. Many of these artworks revolve around a central female protagonist (and hero), named Alice. The surreal-ness inherent in dreams is a major influence in these works. In Alice’s world people, animals, and plants grow and shrink at will and of course, danger is always afoot.The artworks together suggest mosaic snapshots of a journey with a definite beginning, middle, and resounding end.
My 'Who We Are-Urban Portraits' were inspired directly by my decade as a Middle and High school art teacher and portray students I knew while teaching in the South Bronx. These dynamic coming-of-age portraits make visible what is hidden underneath my subject’s often tough exteriors. All too evident were the crime and poverty my students witnessed and experienced, forces that dramatically and decisively impacted their world views. I wanted the art to reflect this most of all. If these portraits were an album, Collectively, I would describe these portraits as the ultimate Hip-Hop album, with a couple of Rock n/ Roll tracks thrown in there.
