Stephen W. Evans' current work deals with joining and separation: one's proximity to being on the threshold between two realities and on the crux of realization. The underlying thesis is an ontological one, not onl of art as a whole, but of life and being. The propositional roof for the work is the philosophical question, "why is there something rather than nothing," lending inquisition into the very act of making, as well as what we might learn about our cosmos and ourselves.
