Megan Evans is a multi-media artist, representing ideas of transformation in her work, primarily through the use of acrylic paints on unconventional-shaped canvases – lacking corners and reflecting the fluidity of transformation. By incorporating a variety of materials including handmade papers, wire sculptures and printmaking, she creates layers upon layers in her work, reflecting the transformation in nature as it relates to the transformation in life. She expresses the fluidity of life through her use of organic and circular shapes as a symbol for the transformative power of movement forward. By harmonizing these elements with a layer approach, she sets forth a platform for a viewer to consider the relationship between layers – how each layer in her pieces relates to the layer before – thereby demonstrating a connection to the universal reality of how each layer of life relates to the prior.
