The beautifully tactile, organic works of Connecticut artist Evan Nesbit

Posted by James Cartwright,

Evan Nesbit is a mixed media artist living and working in Connecticut, creating large-scale woven works that are alive with colour and inherently tactile. Created using a mixture of acrylic, wool and masonry foam as well as traditional patchwork techniques Nesbit’s creations cry out to be touched, bursting forth from their wall fixtures out into space; at times taking organic forms that appear richly fertile, evoking both masculine and feminine sexuality despite being composed from materials largely associated with feminine craft.
