We are pleased to present a site specific installation of conceptual painting created by local artist and VAC member, Evan Locke.

Evan is an artist living and working in Victoria BC. He holds a masters in visual arts from the University of Victoria, works as an architectural designer, and is currently the director of the Ministry of Casual Living’s Window Gallery.

Rather than the painterly signifiers of the artist’s hand, the mechanically operable support structures convey the physical interaction of a performer. The physicality of the rough lumber construction and the unedited transfer of paint to raw canvas advocate an authenticity and truthfulness in process and materiality. The works are not meant to suspend disbelief or satisfy the expectation of pictorial painting. Instead, I am looking to uncover a meaningful realization in a viewer of confronting reality.
