Lara Joy Evans

Lara Joy Evans’ works deal with issues of techno-primitivism, religious symbology in nature, the digital dark age, and its implications on the collective conscious. Against the backdrop of rising pillars of dirt, dung, and spit, the artist’s termite mounds become a site of worship and primeval mystification. With chambers connected by swollen passages leading to spiking columns and platforms, structures that evoke termite colonies and dripping stalagmites, and mud spires that ascend towards the sky, Evans’ termite mounds connect heaven and earth in an alchemical union.
