Simon Evans™ is the artistic collaboration between Simon Evans and Sarah Lannan. The artists create dense text-based collages saturated with short, poetic phrases, drawings, and images often created from the detritus of everyday life both inside and outside of the studio. They describe a world poised between two poles of earnestness and irony. With a wry brand of melancholy, Simon Evans™ presents us with a laundry list of drawings that take the form of diagrams, charts, maps, advertisements, diary entries, inventories, and cosmologies that plunge the viewer into alternate states of pathos and hope.
Exposing the fallibility of American safety nets, the newest edition, Insecurity Card, asks an honest question of security, both personal and as a society. Created in multiple screens of red, white and blue, the artists recreate the traditional design of the American Social Security Card - creating the framework for a stage, alluding to the idea that security is just theatre, both a comedy and tragedy. Each edition has a unique hand applied serial number.
