The foundation of Ned Evans’ artistic life is rooted in the light and space of his Southern California upbringing and his life-long connection to the ocean and surfing. His career trajectory began with an education at the seminal UCI Art Department in the early 70s, where LA legends Robert Irwin and Craig Kauffman inspired the next generation of conceptually adventurous artists such as Chris Burden and Alexis Smith. The physical and compositional “bones” of Evans’ art-making were developed through years of designing and building artist studios, and working with artists like Ed Moses, who shared his interest in architecture and painting. His new exhibition, FLUX MAZE combines all of these histories and elements.

Ann Chamberlin’s paintings draw inspiration from fantasy, myth, local stories and the depths of the artist’s imagination. The small scale of the works belies the detailed narrative that each depict: they act as windows into larger worlds, giving only a snippet of the overarching story implied in each.

Chamberlin lives and works in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a town steeped in artistic tradition and history. Wishful Thinking is the artist’s first exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery.

On view October 17 – November 28, 2020
