Evan Hecox at Joshua Liner Gallery
September 9th, 2009 by Jeffrey Pena
Our friends over at Joshua Liner Gallery are hosting a solo exhibition for Denver based artist Evan Hecox. ‘The Last Thousand Years.’ will open this Saturday September 12th from 6-9pm, the artist will be in attendance. The show features some beautifully crafted gouche and ink pieces showing urban landscapes which in the past have referenced cities like Mexico City and San Francisco.
In this particular series “Hecox draws on recent travels to Vietnam, depicting the bustling street life of Ho Chi Minh City and other locales. The scenes teem with pushcarts, bicycles, cars, and people—most hurrying in crisscrossed trajectories, with the occasional long black braid of hair among the cacophony of commercial signs and shop fronts. These cinematic snapshots of urban life are given a uniform visual quality through Hecox’s lovely, muted palette.” (Joshua Liner Website)
