Artist Statement

Nouzha Evans

I grew up in Azrou, Grenoble and the San Francisco Bay Area, where I have lived for the past 32 years. Emotionally and culturally, I’m equally attached to these places. I worked for more than two decades on color distribution in the visualization of observable natural facts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, earth, and environmental science. Working in a quiet, clean and isolated environment has always been crucial to my artwork; isolation from distractions and exposure helps me keep the dialogue flow between the art and myself uninterrupted. For years, I even avoided influences from various art movements simply because I had to walk this path alone. In 2000, I started contacting scientists, sharing with them the results of my effort to understand the interdependence between art and science. Organizing their comments will be my 2017-2018 challenge.

Backstories

During my artistic journey, I have had many interesting, behind-the-scenes backstories to share.

Here is one about a piece called “Black Hole Radiation,” which I did at a Street Painting Festival in the Bay Area.
Like many other artists at the festival, I worked with chalk, but because my piece needed a 3D composition, I used additional layers of chalk powder. At the end of that day, it was slightly windy, and chalk started gently flying, not just from my piece but also from other artist’s work. My two neighboring artists complained to the festival administration, saying that the chalk from my piece was getting on their artwork. I ended up watching hopelessly as the management used a vacuum cleaner to pick up my 3D galactic dust effect, bringing the artwork down to Zero-D! I interiorized my sadness because at that moment I didn’t know what to do with my feelings. The small objects, and the dust on my piece were meant to spiral and get sucked into the black hole, but not into a house vacuum cleaner. Black holes are not really a cosmic vacuum cleaner.
