WILLIAM EVERTSON

My current work explores contemporary intersections with mythologies and folklore. We often hear Shakespeare’s observation that there is nothing new under the sun, I often return to this observation and find contemporary expression of ancient legends, morality scolds and the like. I work to make visible the ghosts of our human failings, fragility and hubris. We live in an era of computerized access to imagery, searchable and extending to the most distant past of mark makers. The assimilation and reinterpretation of past graphic styles in light of our current cultural climate continues to be my main muse."
