DARK SYSTEMS is artist Evan Gruzis' first book, created in conjunction with his first New York solo show at Deitch Projects December 2008. In this book, over 60 of Evan's complex ink paintings are reproduced with an introduction by former Museum of Modern Art curator Joachim Pissarro. Evan's deceptively photographic ink paintings feature palm trees, digital clocks, 80's graphic design tropes, ghosts and strange texts. Gruzis is not from LA but looks like he just returned on the red-eye: a malaise straight out of the Hollywood hills seeps into his portraits and landscapes channeled through Ed Ruscha. With the sardonic wit of Wayfarer-toting Brett Easton Ellis, and a unique technique of manipulating inks to keep you guessing, Gruzis┐ works stick with you like a half-remembered name or intangible word. What you see is often only half there, or mockingly not there at all.
