"Turnbuckle," collage by Evan Horback

by Alec Clayton for OLY ARTS

Evan Clayton Horback grew up in New Jersey and earned a degree in art from State University of New York. Between those two events, he spent years pursuing the monastic life in ashrams in New York and India. He spent 10 years as an arts educator on the East Coast, then moved to Olympia in 2013, where he is known for his paintings and collages.

“For the most part,” Horback said, “my studio time investigates themes centering on identity, like fragmentation of the self, intersectionality and cultural marginality. I think the (collages on) vintage books and print material can create a narrative context for my work, and I welcome that.”
