Hey Evan, have you ever thought about counseling?
You have a seriously warped imagination... unsettling and beautiful work.

Beautiful pieces. A nice mixture of thoughtful, provocative and disturbing.
Maan! I'm a fan of your scary sculpts!
You're work is AMAZING.
I especially like the first sculpture of the creepy couple.
Evan, if you don't mind a question, I was interested in knowing what your favorite clay is to work with. I'm sure it's different for whatever project your working on, but if you had to pick one, what would it be?
What I am always aiming for in my art is intensity of emotion and ideas. For me, art is very impulsive....similar to feelings. The first time you experience something it is usually the strongest. As time goes by, the emotion becomes weaker. I feel no differently about the beginning stages of creating a sculpture. The majority of my personal sculptures were rendered in the first 24 hour period. Of course, I spend many weeks adjusting and refining, but the overall mood is created in the very first sitting. So if I am fighting to model my idea with using a laborious and uncooperative clay, the emotional side of the piece suffers. That raw burst of creative energy can be greatly diminished or even lost if I have to spend days battling a very tough material.
Many people love using Chavant...I have often been dissatisfied with the results. Even the softer grades of Chavant still have a rigidity that I find a hindrance. Every artist needs to find a material of choice that best conveys their artistic expression. Iíve come to the conclusion that sculpting with Waterclay or Roma Plastilina allows me the emotional freedom that I just canít achieve with Chavant. I thought this was an interesting question about the qualities and psychology of a material...and the implications it has on the artistís work.
