This project developed at a time when many changes were happening. It was Mary Evans' way to process ideas and feelings about experiences though this life. It served as a most honest and open companion. In other spirit speak decks, a sort of formula was used. With Iris, the images and ideas formed in a more loose and intuitive way. The intention was to give this project freedom to appear as it wanted.
Mary Elizabeth Evans, born in Nashville Tennessee was influenced early on by her environment. Dark and playful southern folk art and storytelling have become the bones of Mary's work. Folk art, serving more as a craft than "high art" is a reoccurring theme. Raised in the church, from a young age she was attracted to ritual and mysticism. Themes of the occult materialize themselves from a feminist perspective in naive line work that dance and tumble on paper. In her practice she honors craft as a form of expression that is accessible to many and can be used as a tool for self reflection.
