Mixed Media From Evan Clayton Horback

by Adam McKinney for OLY ARTS

Evan Clayton Horback is the cover artist for this year’s Fall Arts Walk program, with a piece called “Street Love.” Horback grew up in New Jersey and earned a degree in art from State University of New York. Between those two events, he pursued 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’s known for his paintings and collages. “For the most part,” Horback says, “my studio time investigates themes centering on identity, like fragmentation of the self, intersectionality and cultural marginality. I think (my collages on) vintage books and print material can create a narrative context for my work, and I welcome that.”
