Laura Evans’ pale sculptural drawings create interior volumes that are delineated by web-like interconnected lines. In The Aching Web, Evans has built soaring and twisted forms into a large gallery installation. The lines express a fluidity as well as an awkward geometry. The artist collects dead branches in her neighbor-hood and coats them with AquaResin. Knobby joints made with Apoxie Sculpt become stars in a constellation, hubs in a child’s assembled Tinker-Toy set or neuron centers.
