I write down the days to be in them. The body no matter what grounds me I label the anatomy with Diary entries . I made one [version of this picture] before when things were calmer. The bodies are tattered from before - Simon Evans
In "The Portrait of the Artist as a Capitalist Goat 2," Simon Evans pairs images, mainly anatomical diagrams, with brief diary entries spanning from early March 2020 through October. Evans uses a dark humorous lens through which to understand the world. At times, entries written over several days string together in a loose, poetic form:
4:01PM, Wednesday August 19, 2020: "I like to get high and go for a run because it makes me feel real." Friday 4:44PM, August 22, 2020: "Everybody would be happier if I went faster." 9:15PM March 21: "I run because I'm scared."
Evans' observations toggle between the interior and exterior. An October 12 entry reads: "I have to take the dogs out. The future terrifies me."
