~WALL-E/E-V-A-H/meet EVAH !!
. . . say what !! about artworld/real world/mass culture/pop culture SYNERGY !!
The NYC art scene was recently graced by the work and presence of our very own, organically sensitive !! and, also initially – a touch cool/prickly, but ultimately sweet – and, right on !! – E-V-A-H !!!
EVAH FAN, hailing from Berkeley, California – showed her work recently, with pal BRENDAN MONROE – at LITTLE CAKES – in what was to be revealed as – Hanna Fushihara Aron’s last show in her current Lower East Side storefront abode.
Called ‘Bed and Breakfast’ – the show ran JUNE 6 – JUNE 29, 2008

SOME MORE PIX – FROM OPENING DAY – ‘BED and BREAKFAST’ – JUNE 6, 2008
detail, ‘The Cook, the Thief and The Pompost Kyle’, collaborative earth/floor work by EVAH FAN & BRENDAN MONROE. Brendan made the plants, and seedlings. Evah made the small sculpey figurines. . . . “E-A-R-T-H ? – define earth please.”
and it’s not just the s-e-e-d-l-i-n-g-s !!
EHAH’S figurines have the same rounded out features – just not quite that rounded out !! as the WALL-E ‘B&L’ space tourists – with their atrophied limbs !!
(p.s. . . . if you’ve ever received one of those telephone book sized, whole forest decimating – camera product ‘catalogs’ – in the mail – unsolicted – from NYC’S B&H – you might think .. well, that’s where they got B&L from… how far off a bet – is that, I wonder ?)
s-e-e-d-l-i-n-g-s !! oh oh – EVAH’S figurine has detected ‘DIRECTIVE – TOP SECRET’ !! – newly resurgent plant life beginnings.
installation shot – EVAH FAN & BRENDAN MONROE – ‘The Cook, the Thief and the Pompost Kyle’.
one of EVAH FAN’s small gouache drawings on paper, ‘Field Study 2’, 4 x 4 ins.
despite their austere and educated, not to mention sleek & distant packaging – EVAH FAN & E-V-A-H/WALL-E – both get – !! – what makes the human & it seems robot !! world – go round !!
