MILAN.- Federico Luger presents "times2," Franklin Evans' second solo exhibition at the Gallery. In this project, Evans moves forward with his research on time and repetition with an installation that, as in previous shows, will include painting, installation and drawing, and a diversity of materials. The show features pairs of works in which each part of the pair will force a consideration about the other. An example of this is the installation on the floor with press releases in the same fashion of the one included in "Greater New York" at MoMA P.S.1, (originofmcurrentmind). In "Times 2", Evans plans to install a photographed version of originofmcurrentmind that will be divided in two. The first path will be the tattered press releases in their suspended state of decay, the second path will be the images from each press release isolated and increased in scale to match the size of the original press release. Both paths will be laminated and taped to the floor guiding the viewer into the installation and to the starting pair of watercolors, and each on e provides a different kind of information: while the first group of images talks about text and its erosion; the second is about the image in isolation. At the same time, the watercolors pairs are similar, but while a group consists in blocks of colours, the other one is formed by texts.

The goal that Evans pursues with this installation is to invite the viewer to reflect on the conceptual possibilities of temporal expansion and contraction. Through the repetition of images, ideas, shapes, he attains a semantic suspension that allows to perceive how objects and concepts can emerge without a predetermined rate.

Franklin Evans, born in Reno, NV, lives and works in New York. He has a BA from Stanford University and an MFA from University of Iowa. His work has been exhibited at The Drawing Center, New York, NY; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA; and El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY. He has had solo exhibitions internationally, including Sue Scott Gallery (New York) in 2009 and Federico Luger, Milan, in 2007. In 2008 he co-curated "Perverted by Theater" at Apexart. In 2010 his work has been featured at the Czech Cultural Institute, the RISD Museum and he has been selected for the last edition of the exhibition "Greater New York" at MoMA-P.S.1. He has been selected for residencies by The Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program, LMCC Workspace: 120 Broadway, and Yaddo. His work is in the permanent collections of El Museo del Barrio (New York), The Weatherspoon Art Museum, The Sweeney Art Gallery, University of California, Riverside, and Progressive Art Collection.
