D'Arcy Island Leper Colony Seb Evans

About the artist

Originally hailing from Vancouver Island, Seb Evans is a Montreal based emerging artist whose drawing and print based work explores ideas surrounding identity through the lens of history. His work focuses on labour, marginalized populations and our relationship to the land where we live. Further, he reclaims agency in creating and propagating alternative or lesser known histories while combatting jingoist sensibilities. He utilizes archival imagery, turning his collection of work into a filtered archive of its own. The abstraction of an historical document into a visual piece allows broader access to the oft obfuscated,“rose-coloured lenses” of our collective stories of identity.

About the piece

This print is made in-house using archival pigment inks on heavyweight 100% cotton fibre archival paper. Each print is custom-trimmed and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Edition dimensions reflect actual paper sizes, not the printed image itself. While we try to maximize image size on all prints, a minimum border of .5 inches is left to allow for easy framing.
