JASON EVANS MONKEY FACE: PICTURES FOR LOOKING AT, DRAWING FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

Jason Evans’s photographs circulate in many worlds, from fashion magazines and websites to record covers and museums, and he’s often interested in subverting the conventions of the genres and venues in which he works. Such is the case with this portfolio of seventeen unique images, which is the first such series Evans has created for photography collectors, available through Aperture’s limited-edition print program

These works, all titled Monkey Face, are part of his ongoing series Pictures for Looking At, Drawing for Photography. They consist of Evans’s own photographs, to which he has applied brightly colored stickers, mainly from Japan and Germany. The stickers’ patterns are randomly and intuitively generated, and create an oscillation between foreground and background, image and abstraction, pattern and randomness. The resultant works are a workout for the eyes and the mind, a visual exercise that can be understood by everyone who encounters them. Over time, the stickers will lose their grip on the photographic prints; they will fall off the surface, collect at the bottom of the frame, and reveal more of Evans’s original images.
