At Emily Eveleth’s studio you will see some works from two new series in progress.
“I want my paintings to form genres all unto themselves. As they span the boundaries between formal portraiture and expansive landscape, freely pulling in references from art history and allusions to contemporary life, my ambition is for them to radiate the seduction of objects of projected desire.” -EE
Eveleth’s doughnut series will be shown in February 2024 at the Miles McEnery Gallery in New York. The figurative works, including a wall-sized installation made expressly for the gallery’s space, for which you will see lush oil sketches, will be exhibited at the Anderson Yezerski Gallery in Boston in May 2024. Eveleth’s works have been written about in Bomb Magazine, Art in America, the New Yorker, and the New York Times. More work at www.emilyeveleth.com
