Cynthia Evers' Artworks: Highlighting the Unseen of Everyday Life
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Cynthia Evers in The New Flux. The exhibition opens October 20, 2017 and runs through November 9, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, October 26 from 6-8 pm.
Using gouache, pastel, or acrylic paint, Belgian artist Cynthia Evers employs realism in both subject and execution. Many of her works appear to be from the artist's own perspective, capturing the movement of a hand to grasp a drinking glass or else the wandering eye of the viewer down to their own legs or over another figure. By faithfully representing partial bodies realistically viewed, Evers collapses the distinction between artist and viewer. Attention to light and shadow celebrate scenes that could be passing moments in between action. In greyscale or color, this attention to oneself, ground, and setting lends the work a peaceful tone. Evers’ goal of highlighting the moments that go almost unseen in everyday life carries through in the carefully detailed, smoothly rendered strokes in each image.
Cynthia Evers’ introspective pieces swirl with interest as limbs and lines of gravel or cobblestone cross and recede. Hands and glasses of water, half empty or half full lie in a space of ambiguity, allowing the viewer to fill in information even as the scene is crisply and deftly described.

About the Exhibition
The New Flux presents a cross-section of different pictorial practices gathered around the theme of nature in urban life. Taking what is specific to a natural setting—a landscape, a body of water—and showing how it impacts the flow or urban life, The New Flux makes a case that our dependency on nature is just as pervasive as our dependency on technology.
