My work is about men's relationship with their own bodies - and the delusions, fantasies, and toxic emotions that are attached to that relationship. There is a repetition of self-flagellation (often expressed through exercise) exposing the roots of religious oppression, self-hatred, and mental illness. Imbedded in a macabre, mercurial and humorously self-deprecating grotesqueness often used to mask a dangerous mix of fear and frustrated anger.
Christopher Evans (b.1985, Schenectady, NY, USA) is an artist, educator, and writer. Christopher holds an MA in Studio Arts from the University at Albany and a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of South Florida. His work and writings focus on mental health disorders, body image, and where they interact. He draws from his own depression, anxiety, and unique evangelical upbringing. His work is saturated with obviousness, grotesqueness, clichés, and bad jokes as he tries to visually navigate causations and contradictions. Christopher currently works and resides in Saratoga Springs, NY.
