Evan Nesbit Installation Image

Leaving one’s preconceptions at the door is easier said than done, but Nesbit’s latest exhibition demands just that. The boundary-blurring artist takes the rhetorical technique of synchysis, a deliberate jumbling of words to create a sense of bewilderment, and applies it to visual composition. Using his signature media of acrylic and burlap, he obfuscates all sense of subject, structure, and framing, adding poetic resonance to the moments spent searching for meaning in each painting and study. Through this approach, each work is considered for what it is, rather than the viewer’s preconceived notions of what it ought to be.
