Untitled (After Evans)

Edition 1 of 3

While visiting Mount Pleasant, PA, Sean Stewart was struck viewing a World War I statue, recognizing it from a 1935 photograph by Walker Evans. Turning around, the view behind him consisted of a hodgepodge of construction debris and fast food signage, another sort of modern day Walker Evan’s scene. The contrast between these two images is stark: a monument to those who lost their lives for freedom, and a forest of signage showing small town America a century after the war. Stewart’s work has been exhibited internationally, and has been featured in the Humble Arts Foundation, and The Heavy Collective. He is the Lab Manager of the Lab @ Silver Eye.
