For more than four decades, Fred Eversley has produced a singular body of work that considers materials, light, and the optical qualities of shapes and colors as part of a broad investigation of individual perceptual experience. This exhibition, which opened at Art + Practice in Los Angeles, examines a series of black, white, and gray sculptures that Eversley began in the early 1970s.
