This Friday February 20th 2015 Evil Tender will present their first gallery showing at Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco, CA titled ‘In Reference’. We had the pleasure of printing a few of the silk screened pieces which will be on display and for sale both at the gallery and later online directly from Evil Tender.

‘In Reference,’ in brief –
The woman walks into the room. She’s watched. Observed. The man behind the canvas asks her to pose and she does. He paints. This woman becomes a huntress. She becomes Wonder Woman. The model leaves but she also stays, her image now on the canvas – her body transformed and given new purpose.
In Reference places model Hattie Watson in front of photographer Holly Burnham’s camera, and together they created a series of photographs ready for a gallery wall. Those photographs were then given to a group of illustrators, printmakers, and painters to use as reference material for them to create a piece of their own – to use Hattie and Holly’s images as the beginning for something new.
In Reference explores the relationship between the artist and the subject. The visual conversation that becomes a finished work.
