Rob Evans was born and raised in the suburbs of Washington DC, where he had unlimited access to some of the finest institutes of art and science. His impulse to interpret the world visually came naturally, he recalls. Moreover, his scientific-minded parents (a biochemist and an archaeologist respectively) awakened in him a sense of mystery which is still at the core of his creations.
“In the last decade my paintings have dealt more and more metaphorically with themes inspired by places, experiences and memories,” according to Evans. “The most recurring theme is everyday occurrences. Common places and objects let me examine and confront the issues I face, as an artist but equally as a parent, spouse and participant in this particular time in history.”
