Another one from my upcoming show at William Turner - opening is Saturday, November 7th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.. Mark your calendars. I'd love to see you there. This one, Cremesicle, measures in at 80"h x 72"w.

A very close companion wrote this about my upcoming show. Hope it inspires you to check out what coexists "Inside The Prism":

Inside the prism, hues twist and torque, hazy in spots, vivid and electrified in others. At once atmospheric and otherworldly, the newest paintings from artist Ned Evans are a carnivale trompe l’oeil – a sumptuous, gorgeous ride of unexpected colors twisted around one another. While some are more terrestrial, grounded by the strong vertical lines and solid colors that create a stable foundation for the refractions speaking in the foreground, most of these works are wonderfully, transcendentally orbital. Purity of color and expression seem to drive the cosmos of these spacey tendrils. Released from rigid cerebral tenacity, this collection is about intensity and emotion from the core; it’s as though a sort of automatism takes over until the creator is completely spent or the painting is finished. Sometimes these events are simultaneous, sometimes one overrides the other. Whichever occurs, the result is a verdant mix of fractures, interwoven stripes of sound and color, begging you to climb into the glowing tableaus and experience a planetary shift. Calling Major Tom. Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.

on saturday night, my girlfriend and i took fred for a southern sojourn and trekked down to laguna beach to check out the myriad ukeleles adorned for this event. will and charles of the surf gallery down in laguna beach work tirelessly to make these happenings exist. incredibly inventive, super nice guys, they're so easy to work with and they're so supportive of the surfrider relationship, it's great to know them and be a part of their vision. for this event, part of the billabong cosmic creek event, surfers/artists were asked to paint ukeleles in whatever form, fashion, or manner we deemed fit. the uke arrived and you hit the ground running.
here's mine:
some of the others were so ingenious and beautiful:
