Art Fuse review of After the Fact

“After the Fact : Paintings for Coco” was featured in ARTE FUSE.  Read the excerpt below

In the classic fantasy movie The Wizard of Oz, the moment Dorothy opens the door of her tornado blown shack from her black and white world back in Kansas – COLOR abounds then her adventure begins with the yellow brick road! The same exuberance is expressed by Evan Levine with his selected color rich abstract paintings for his solo show “After the Fact: Paintings for Coco” at the Proposition. Arte Fuse landed at the opening reception last June 9, 2012 and everything looked better  live and in Technicolor.

The show featured some smaller scale canvases executed between 2011 and 2012. These started off as studies, which he then took a picture of and enlarged it in order to plot each component on a bigger canvas then paint it to a more clear detailed 80 X 80 inch squares. Careful paint layering, hand drawn shapes, lines, blurred colors and various tonal combinations made this a vivid tapestry quite enticing to dive into. A folk art vibe emanates upon initial glance but the more you concentrate on the details that you find yourself drawn into a fantastical landscape.  Click here to read full review…
