My ceramics are part of an ongoing attempt to bring a drawn line into the physical world. The unusual techniques have been developed over years of studio practice. These include an extensive repertoire of hand mixed glazes and combined elements in multiple firings. The bases of these pieces are made by traditional slip casting in […]

A painter paints in spite of himself, out of necessity for his spirit to survive gracefully and without regrets. There is not a worse painting than the one that was thought of but never executed. When I arrived in the USA (a very young man, then) I had been practicing both Literature and Painting with […]

“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.” Marc Chagall I took a 34 year break from art as I pursued a successful career as a corporate executive. I returned to painting in 2010. As I picked up my paintbrushes again, I realized that my art was not […]

Encaustic painting is fun—you work with a blowtorch, hot wax, and a pancake griddle. Weird, right? I desperately try to control the wax with the fire, to make the geometric shapes and straight lines I picture in my head, and the wax does its own thing. So I reframe my expectations as the wax decides […]

Inspired by artists Naum Gabo, Alexander Calder, and Raider Nelson and mathematician/model builder Theodore Olivier, I continue in 2017 to use straight lines to produce three dimensional curves. One present focus is the suspension of multiple shapes at once. Website

I am interested in exploring and creating connections between objects and images. My compositions focus on actual and imagined links between place, past and present. Using traditional and innovative techniques in my work, I juxtapose paint and wax on wood surfaces with found remnants. These artifacts of personal histories are essential to my artistic process, […]

SAT only  My lifelong interest in movement and background in dance have inspired me to explore various methods for expressing kinetic energy in still photographs. My preferred method is to leave my camera shutter open for a fairly long duration and to almost draw images with a moving camera. This approach incorporates spontaneity and chance. […]

I love to paint. I am drawn irresistibly to the landscape, to its forms and colors and particularly its light, which varies so dramatically throughout the day and throughout the seasons. Beauty is always an important consideration. I cannot paint a subject unless I see something beautiful in it, something that makes me grateful to […]

Mark-making is, for me, a meditative state. I love manipulating materials—both conventional and unorthodox. No matter whether I am working in paint or pencil, with thread or with found objects, my goal is to create moments of deep feeling—often inspired by the passing of time and my own childhood memories—through an economy of shapes and […]

Abstract paintings have always spoken to me the loudest. The world that surrounds us is a source of both limitations and freedoms. We are part of nature. The threads lead outward to the surrounding environment and inward to what sustains us, what satisfies us, becomes perches we inhabit, fences we keep, escapes we make. They […]

I work with simple geometric pattern, primarily in the form of inkjet prints. The most recent series begun about two years ago is built around dashed lines that I relate to both diagrammatic lines and stitching. These recent pieces are printed on thin Japanese papers that lend them a distinctive subtle texture and color. http://www.evanread.net […]

My paintings and drawings are born of curiosity about the world traveled, coupled with the world I can create. Besides responding to architecture, I am also responding to cultural similarities and model patterns. New York’s architecture provokes and induces thought; emotions are aroused by looming buildings, sharp corners and sloping skylines. These all speak to […]

The Communist era during which I grew up squeezed an imprint on me, a method of perceiving and living in the surrounding world, which in turn defined a method of creating. Getting involved in the New York art scene in 1988 “opened a window” in my soul. My first solo show in New York was […]

I am interested in visual subjects exploring authenticity and identity, feminism and destruction. I am curious about the constructs of creativity in bilingual cultures and the limits of language in different cultures. I am disturbed by injustice, and my response was to create a depiction of language’s potential ambiguities. Language is power, and lack of […]

I have always been drawn to the ancient art of mosaic, perhaps because I find great beauty in brokenness. The light refracted through tiny shards of glass and those fragments painstakingly surrendered one by one, can together evoke a certain harmony and wholeness. Even though I begin with a vision that is uniquely mine, I […]

I love to work in many media and genres, often more than one at the same time. The process of making absorbs me. The feel of paper, paint, pencil and brush delights me. I feel lucky that my occupation is work and play at the same time. I recently published “The Migraine Book”, a collection […]

Folded paper and mosaic are, at first glance, quite distinct media. Yet they both play with pattern and repetition, geometry and rhythm. Pieces come together to create a puzzle, often unexpectedly. Light and shadow interact to create a deeper, more complex image. My work in paper and mosaic is mathematical and meditative, feeding needs that […]

 My world is of earth and spirit. Nature is at once a deep source of inspiration, and a comforting healer. More than anything, the quality of light which radiates from and about the subject is what I am moved to capture. I try to express the essence – the spirit of a place, a person, […]
