In Touch of Grey, his first solo exhibition at The Journal Gallery, Evan Gruzis takes a vacation from his ‘New Wave Noir’ style – literally. Inspired by a recent trip to Florida, Touch of Grey is a new selection of ink drawings and paintings that lack the stark silhouettes and graphic contrasts of his previous works. Instead the viewer is taken to a strangely tragic version of Margaritaville through his intimate studies of the Florida landscape and oil paintings based on vignettes of tourist T-shirt designs. The subject matter includes foreclosed homes, sunsets, skulls, tropical birds and fruit, ranging from the simply observational, to an exploration of kitsch.
