The installation, Bouquets for America, was created November 3, 2020 – January 20, 2021, between the U.S. election and the Presidential inauguration. This was a time of anxious waiting filled with post-election legal battles, spiraling death tolls from Covid-19, and a violent insurrection at the United States capitol. During this period, Evans turned to the practice of collage. She found the process of making each artwork a form of concentrated meditation – gathering up what was separated, over and over again, to build a new whole.
