In addition to her painting practice, Evelyn responds to spaces as a curator. Evelyn curates with curiosity to address the uncanny, and she values the voice of artists as a collective. She recognizes exhibition parentheses being literary devices that are inevitably about belonging. Aware of her social status in the United States as “the other”, she responds as an observer rather than a participant. Her cross cultural references allow her to see beyond cultural differences, and she finds balance between the logical and the sentimental; she rationally gathers information and organizes it with sensitivity gained from her own painting practice.
