“These paintings grow out of the painting process. When I begin, I have no idea what the finished painting will look like. Lately my paintings have transformed themselves into imaginary views of the world around our house in North Garden, Virginia. These paintings are like memories that I have uncovered hidden in the many layers of acrylic paint.”

John Borden Evans was born in 1956 in Edinburgh, Scotland to American parents. He graduated from Davidson College as a studio art major and has been painting ever since.
Thirty six years ago, he and his wife moved to an old farm house in North Garden, Virginia. There they raised two children and now John spends a lot of time looking after his five grandchildren who all live nearby. John enjoys working in his garden, building things and being a good neighbor.
Over the years, John’s paintings have become more and more about place. That place is his immediate environment, the cattle fields, the trees, the fences and the skies.
His textured acrylic paintings have been shown in numerous galleries across the South, including Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington DC, Nashville, Columbia, SC, and Raleigh, NC. They have been the subject of many reviews and catalogues and are in major private and public collections, including the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center and the Battle Childrens Hospital at the University of Virginia.
