Dreams, and Other Places
New paintings by Charlotte Evans
On view September 9th - October 7th
Opening reception Sunday, September 9th, 6-9pm
Newly arrived in New York from London, Charlotte Evans, in this unfamiliar environment, turned for images to places once visited, known and remembered. After almost a year here, though, the known is now being combined with the not yet known, prompting fresh ideas, fresh imaginings…
Where once she would paint people and places just seen - China, Vietnam, Canada, Brazil, Italy, home in England - now, something subtly different informs her work.
Her process has changed too. Each image is envisioned, layers of things are remembered (imagined and real), rapidly noted down and drawn again and again to be eventually developed into small paintings or gouaches. Colour has always been an important part of the narrative, but drawing has become more important than ever before.
Dreams, and Other Places is, (are) a synthesis of all this, memory and imagination too. We all dream of somewhere other, somewhere that exists only in the mind’s eye, where emotions are heightened - happiness, melancholy, yearning…. These are the best places of all.
Open studios and more, September 8-9
In conjunction with the Go,Brooklyn studio tour, several Wayfarers members including Melissa S. Armstrong, Renee Delosh and Craig Hein will have their workspaces open to the public during the weekend of September 8 and 9.
Studios will be open 12-6pm both days, with extended hours on Sunday until 9pm, during the reception for Charlotte Evans’ exhibition, Dreams, and Other Places. From 7:30-9pm there will also be a short, repeating performance for a very limited audience by George Ferrandi in her studio.
