A history of struggle and toil

Mike Dulin writes about the Eric Yevak show at the Schindler Gallery for Style:

There is an age to Yevak’s paintings. The markings and appearance reveal a history of struggle and toil like the face of a boxer or the hands of a farmer. His use of resin envelops the canvas in a hazed patina. Intertwined are reappropriated symbols of Arabic language, street graffiti and pressed images from old wallpaper. Yevak creates something wholly new and then proceeds to layer upon it a lifetime of wear.
