Vern Evans and Elyse Graham
Hatheway Curatorial is pleased to present Carbon Black, an achromatic exhibition, pairing never-before-shown rock n’ roll photographs taken by Vern Evans with the temporal, living sculptures of Elyse Graham. On the surface, the show revels in a playful combination of clusters of balloons and frenetic rock concerts, but closer inspection reveals fully visceral and intuitive works. Graham and Evans focus on capturing fugitive moments of raw energy and have refined their meditative capacities in terms of patience, attention and physical endurance to seize sobering expressions of passing time and fleeting youth.
Living the Dream
For me, being an artist is more than painting alone in my studio. I am inspired by other artists, off-beat adventures and spectacle. I curate exhibitions, collaborate on large public art installations, am an occasional color consultant and interior designer and sometimes I sculpt. I seem to do a lot of writing, but that's just business. I live an art-filled life. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
