SIMON EVANS, Everything I Have (detail), 2008, Pen, paper, scotch tape, correction fluid and ink jet prints of personal inventory, 60 1/4 x 40 1/8 inches.

Simon Evans™ is the artistic collaboration between Simon Evans and Sarah Lannan. The artists create dense  text-based collages saturated with short, poetic phrases, drawings, and images often created from the detritus of everyday life both inside and outside of the studio. They describe a world poised between two poles of earnestness and irony.  With a wry brand of melancholy, Simon Evans™ presents us with a laundry list of drawings that take the form of diagrams, charts, maps, advertisements, diary entries, inventories, and cosmologies that plunge the viewer into alternate states of pathos and hope.
