Rob Evans, 2022

Fossil II

An essay on the force of time, sustainability, and environmental crisis. Based on a 1997 mixed media drawing inspired by childhood memories of collecting fossils in the slag piles of the the strip mines near Plymouth, PA. The drawing incorporates an actual rubbing of a fern fossil which was scanned, printed out and worked around. The NFT brings an additional element of time to the work as smoke belches out from a distant colliery, clouds drift overhead and sunlight fades in and out.
