Artist of the day: Faith Evans-Sills

Thursday, September 24, 2009 · 2 Comments

Faith Evans-Sills is a local (Brooklyn-based) artist who grew up in rural Pennsylvania and Argentina.  She’s been showing in galleries around the Northeast, including A.I.R. gallery and Art Gotham, and Europe since 1995 when she graduated from Skidmore.  She went on to receive her MFA from Parsons in 2002.

Evans-Sills work brings a healthy mix of beauty and drama.  Although she uses prevalent symbols, such as the lotus flower and butterflies, that can easily read as sacchrin, Evans-Sills manages to create art that feels beautiful and intriguing, not trite or overdone.  She achieves this by creating layers of color and darkness, elements of nature and abstractions, the ephemeral and the permanent.

    Thanks so much for listing me as artist of the day, your comments about my work are very insightful! I’ve been enjoying looking through the work of the other artists that you have listed, I like your aesthetic choices, and your Etsy favorites…many of those are my favorites too! Thanks for the great website, and for helping to make contemporary art more accessible!

    Hi Tora, please i would like to know if it is polibsse to convert your circular needles patterns to straight needles. I started doing the “little sisters’s dress” and reached to the “129 stitches”, then did not know what to do, i did it just as you mentioned in the pattern, should i stop now and start all over again and if yes, how do i continue, or can i simply keep working, and how to? maybe if you have this pattern for straight needles it would be easier. thank you very much in advance.
