Simon Evans: Island Time

Friday, February 20, 2009

English artist Simon Evans, 36, used to be a pro-skateboarder. Then he was a writer. But these days he’s expressing himself in scotch tape, pencil shavings, colored pencil and white-out. He uses everyday materials to create vivid stories through collages. For a new show at the James Cohan Gallery in Chelsea, he’s tells the story of Robinson Crusoe, creating the things Caruso used to keep himself alive when stranded on a desert island. Evans said he was hoping to bring text and visual art together.
