Artist Gregory Ferrand draws inspiration from comics, the work of Mexican muralists, and midcentury Americana. Nostalgic and dreamlike, he captures narratives that depict moments of familial life and domesticity, often in suburban settings. His works convey a powerful sense of psychological drama, and of estrangement and isolation. “My paintings explore the disconnection and alienation we often feel, despite (and sometimes because of) the close proximity in which we live to one and other,” he says in a statement. Fascinated by the subject of human interaction, his artwork blossomed out of his observations as an English teacher in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which he recorded in an illustrated journal. Ferrand joins gallery artists Nicholas Herrera, Lynn Boggess, Harriet Yale Russell, and others for Evoke’s Winter Group Exhibition. The show is currently on view at the gallery and online and continues through April 24.
