This painting depicts a solitary figure with elongated limbs and an exaggerated pose. Her crossed arms cover her breasts in a way that suggests both aggressive posturing and a defensive stance. The figure seems to be protecting her sexuality—an exposed nipple reaffirming the need for defense. Her black underwear is just thin enough at the waist to imply seduction, yet its simplicity seems to suggest a more utilitarian nature. The subject’s eyes are cast in a light baby blue, a shocking contrast of color to the painting’s overall ochre tones. Her gaze extends off the canvas—confronting both an individual aggressor and a greater society at large.

The artist's acrylic paintings employ graphic shapes and a limited color palette to depict women in contorted poses—creating unique contemporary narratives that draw from figurative art and commercial illustration. Evelyn's vignettes of quiet daily moments explore the universal struggles of womanhood. The artist places figures in subtle scenes of reflection, presence and growth while also handling anxieties resulting from societal expectations and more personal critiques—encouraging viewers to reflect on their own daily lives.
