Artist: Evan Kolker

  • Born from the ancient physics of the universe, life has evolved through its folly of generations to produce forms with tangible and specific functions at every conceivable scale. All of our love, fear, passion, and pain is imbedded in these formal archetypes of nature, and is expressed through our invention. Beauty, creation, death and decay; concepts intrinsic to existence, provide the structure of our primal consciousness.
