Evan Hecox 'The Long Way' @ Joshua Liner Gallery
Earlier this month, Evan Hecox unveiled his fourth solo show with Joshua Liner Gallery entitled, The Long Way. Hecox's latest collection of work reflects the artist's fascination with the terrain and topography of the Southwest, as these works on paper serve as a visual link to his recent road trip through this area of the US. Each work was created from sketches and memories of his travels, reflecting the character of these often arid and open spaces. Hecox explores the cultural past of the area with reductive works that leave us with whispers and hints at history. Abandoned cars and structures, add to a sense of a long past, here reduced to clean and clear lines and form.
Alongside the landscapes, Hecox has created three fictional "flags" to visually represent various locations, as well as exploring locales with his continued typographical work. Collectively the show reflects a peaceful and personal journey, each work providing the viewer with visual hints of this powerful terrain.
