A new video projection by Cliff Evans, Empyrean turns a critical eye on contemporary American culture. Using images excerpted from the Internet the artist has created a five-channel animated digital projection which recalls the form of 15th-century northern European altarpieces. Evans challenges the viewer to confront issues of militarism, politics, consumerism and power in our society. Infused with the artist's wry sense of humor and his keen eye for color and juxtaposition, Empyrean is as engaging as it is disquieting.
