Whether you go or not, the monograph, Margaret Evangeline, surveys her expansion of the terms of painting. Evangeline is as likely to take a gun to stainless steel as a brush to canvas. She considers both acts part of her investigation of the medium, calling her bullet-hole works an attempt to understand "the sensation of painting without the paint." There is something inherently philosophical in the work of Margaret Evangeline. Every project throughout her active career endeavors to examine and reframe her physical and emotional understanding of the world. The included texts reveal the wealth of source material that influences her [...] The photos and minimal attributions describing the artist's most streamlined work--the bullet paintings--strike a visual and philosophical sweet spot by showcasing her technical execution and conceptual impetus.
