Seven Sisters (for Jevon)
While many of the works created for Part Project tend toward the whimsical, Laura Evans' "Seven Sisters (for Jevon)" is anything but. Jevon is the name of Evans' cousin who, at age 30, died in a bike accident in Little Rock, Ark., this summer. The Seven Sisters refers to the Pleaides constellation.
"As I was working on this, it made more sense to me to make a group of pieces rather than one large sculpture," the Boston artist tells Crave. "The shapes that I knit began to resemble stars, so that's where the idea for seven of them came from... We are part of a large extended family, so making a 'family' group seemed appropriate."
Evans made her "stars" by blending bike parts with nylon cording and acrylic.
