Emily Eveleth: Past Imperfect


  • Howard Yezerski Gallery 460 Harrison Ave, A16 Boston, MA 02118 (map)

Emily Eveleth | Past Imperfect
On view from October 19  – November 27, 2018

New paintings by Eveleth invite the viewer to wonder, question, and decipher meaning through convocation of minimalist iconography, nonverbal communications, and unspecified environs. Ranging in scale from intimate nine inch square pieces to an enveloping seven by twelve foot painting, these phantasmal oil and gouache pieces invigorate the space with a metaphysical reality, utilizing themes of prestige, ambiguity, and how the self may be located in the world both topographically and metaphorically. Past Imperfect implies a looking back at history through the lens of the present- acknowledging that regardless of outcomes, there is no ‘perfect past’.
