Evan Holloway (b. 1967) stakes a claim for the ongoing relevance of stand-alone sculpture, identifying the conceptually rigorous yet widely accessible nature of the medium. In The Future (2020), Holloway explores the various temporalities experienced over the past year as a result of the global pandemic. Drawing from materials and forms that have previously appeared in his work—for example, incorporating remnants from an unrealized outdoor sculpture that itself was revised numerous times, as well as the ongoing motif of human faces that he first introduced in 2002—he has created a piece that instantiates backward and forward temporal movements. The sculptural composition itself suggests a sense of future projection, with numerous visages stretching outward from a shared connection point: at once caught in mid-motion and perpetually suspended.
