About

[b. 1980 – Denton, TX ::: lives & works – Savannah, GA] MAGGIE EVANS is an artist based in Savannah, Georgia. She currently uses painting, drawing and installation to examine human collective behavior and the hierarchies, homogeneity and social divisions that result. Maggie has shown her work in fifteen solo exhibits, over fifty group shows and has won a number of awards, including Best of Category for Installation at Artfields 2018 (Lake City, SC) and the 2017 Western Bureau Art Prize (San Jose, CA). Reviews and publications include The Washington Post, New American Paintings and Manifest Gallery’s INPA 6. Artist residencies include The Hambidge Center for the Arts (GA) and Central Trak (TX) as well as a full fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center. In 2011 she was awarded a Chinese Government Scholarship that granted her a studio and stipend for ten months at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China. She has been invited to lecture on her work at a number of institutions including Indiana-Purdue University and the University of Texas, Dallas. Maggie holds an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design (2008) where she is currently a Professor of Foundation Studies. In addition to her work as an artist, she performs regularly as a professional jazz singer and bassist. artist statement Collective Behavior Western art has long emphasized the uniqueness of each human being. But beneath these independent identities and myths of rugged individualism lies our deep, intrinsic desire to be part of a group. The group provides security and comfort, but it is also vulnerable to manipulative leadership, oppression of independent thought, and exclusion of those seen as “others.” My paintings use repetitive, uniform imagery to examine this propensity towards collective behavior and its resulting power structures and homogeneity. Nebulous uniformity is more important to my work than specific narratives. Yet simultaneously, we are vaguely aware that individual stories exist within the repetitive buildings and isolated interiors.
