Brett Evans is a Detroit-based artist working primarily in clay (often in tandem with built or found wood and concrete objects for his large-scale constructions). He was raised in the Hudson-Valley in New York and also spent time living in Idaho where he studied at Brigham Young University. He made his way to Michigan to attend the Cranbrook Academy of Art for his MFA.
"My work is what it is; ambiguous, uncanny, and secretly familiar. I rely upon an internal exchange of questions and responses based on intuition and experience. I view experience not as a singular moment, but as a conglomerate of emotion and time. I am exploring ideas of formlessness in conjunction with the coexistence of form, in order to create feelings of cognitive dissonance. These ideas are my tools or vehicles to express my emotions through the use of objects instead of narratives."
