“Under COVID’s restraints, Evan Holm’s SIGHTINGS adapts indoor installation to the outdoors in rogue fashion. SIGHTINGS telegraphs a response to imposed pandemic conditions. The results are contemplative yet sudden appearances of calm offerings; serenity amidst uncertainty with which we all grapple. ” —Lonnie Lee
“With the universal temporary loss of gallery spaces, I felt compelled to share my work with the public in new formats and through non-traditional avenues. I developed the concept of Sightings in partnership with Vessel Gallery, as a means to directly engage Oakland residents within our public outdoor cityscape. Throughout the fall, winter, and spring months of 20/21, I installed a series of sculptures in unique and unexpected urban spaces. I consider these spheres to be a family of visitors, settling lightly upon the ground in locations throughout the landscape. In witnessing their newfound ecosystems with a presence of harmony and calming balance, these spheres act as lenses for us; a sight-glass for us as individuals to look more closely at our inhabitable spaces and internal landscapes.” — Evan Holm
