Evan Sahlman is an up and coming artist based out of West Palm Beach. Originally focused on sculpture and ceramics, Evan has pushed to train himself on a broader scale in the world of painting, often mixing of oil and acrylic with graphite and raw materials.
Sahlman pushes the boundaries of representational art as he integrates local plant life and color. His contemporary interpretation of environment and form can be seen in his vibrant interaction of stroke and expression.
This body of work is inspired by a simple idea that affects us all. We are in relationship constantly and with that comes acts or words that drive wedges between us. Evan works through those stages in this series based upon the first relationship; Adam and Eve. In the loose narration that genesis offers, the focus is put on creation and acts that lead to original sin, whereas he is exploring scenes and figures that talk about the first relationship and how it may have looked and felt. This book reads left to right.
