The Studio Collection Artist Spotlight – Evan Mann
Evan Mann is a Colorado based artist who works with drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation and video. Influenced by artists such as Sara Sze, Tara Donovan, Oliver Vernon and Matthew Barney, he creates otherworldly scenarios and environments that explore the metaphysical and mysterious aspects of reality. He goes great lengths to exercise his imagination as he grapples with themes related to faith, life, death, love and God.
“The work on the Surreal OtterBox cases are my imaginings of metaphysical spaces, the imagery depicts the manifestation of invisible worlds and phenomena beyond the limitations of our physical senses. My hope is for these spatial landscapes to act as imaginative nourishment that feed the mystery of reality.”
