This concert commemorates the 500th anniversary of innovator and artist Leonardo da Vinci’s life and death. Eckart fittingly has curated a concert that includes cutting-edge immersive visual technology and a bold contemporary composition decoding The Last Supper painting in sound.
Evan’s art shares this innovative duality of unconventionality grounded in wisdom. Evan uses artmaking as a means by which to understand the world. He attacks a topic with research and thought, then uses diverse and unexpected media to create his conclusions. The gallery was aware of Evan’s previous exploration of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and immediately saw a pairing with this concert.
Here, Evan incorporates literal “visions” of da Vinci, embedding passages from the master’s sketchbooks in Evan’s signature resin layers and organic forms.
The centerpieces front and back refer to da Vinci’s famous squaring-of-the-circle algorithm based on Euclidian geometry and the golden ratio, which he found repeated in the proportions of the human body—shown in the Vitruvian Man diagram on the cello’s front. And another variation of this golden ratio is the “sacred geometry” of infinitely converging circles overlapping at their center points, which pattern and proportions occur repeatedly in nature—called the Vesica Piscis, da Vinci’s diagram of this pattern is on the cello’s back.

Evan Hildebrandt was paired with this concert because his work explores the science of the natural world through dramatic abstracts. Evan is also known for his use of contemporary media, ranging from repurposed construction products to rare imported pigments. Evan’s fine art is not limited to traditional grounds, rather he pulls it off the wall onto furniture and other practical applications in the interest of creating an environment.
