Evan Gruzis

Evan Gruzis is an interdisciplinary artist who is best known for his technically rigorous ink and watercolor paintings that combine seductive light and vacuous imagery. Through a variety of methods ranging from his trademark india ink still-life to assisted ready-made sculpture, he employs wry humor to push the viewer up against what he calls "the paper-thin safety barrier between objectively questionable taste and cultural significance."

He has had solo exhibitions in New York at Deitch Projects, Nicole Klagsbrun, and The Hole; and internationally at DUVE Berlin, Galerie SAKS in Geneva, and AMP Gallery in Athens. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, The Haggerty Museum of Art in Milwaukee, and The Swiss Institute in New York.
