Always provocative and timely, Evans’s work Flag (2012) incorporates military drones assembling phalanx like to create the American flag. Awaiting a specific “order”, the drones then fly off to to do the bidding of an anonymous super power source. They reassemble to start the cycle all over again. Evans clearly riffs on Jasper Johns’s Flag, yet he translates this famous artwork into a provocative and paranoid icon for the 21st century.
