Franklin Evans at Sue Scott Gallery




Lately Franklin Evans has, as the Sue Scott Gallery press release says, "used his studio as his primary subject", wowing any visitors lucky enough to have been able to stop by. Fortunately for many more, he had weeks to install his current show, "2008/2009 < 2009/2010", since it meant he could extend and enlarge what has become a spectacular studio practice, one which employs watercolor, wallboard, paper, tape, bubble wrap, thread, Mylar, press releases, parts of the gallery (inside and out), the occasional found object, and art monographs.

my favorite nyc show so far this season. the installation is impressive. the side-window piece filled with the wood planks and books was something i wanted to rip-out and take home.
