Artist Simon Evans has created this stunning meditation on consumerism and his own personal consumption as part of his current exhibition “Island Time,” on display at the James Cohan Gallery in NYC now through April 4th. An excerpt from the show’s press release explains the scope of Evans’ work:

Simon Evans’ delicate text-based works are collaged and assembled from prosaic materials including found paper, scotch tape, pencil shavings, colored pencil and white out. They describe a world poised between two poles of earnestness and irony. With his anxieties laid bare and his wry brand of melancholy, Evans presents us with a veritable laundry list of drawings that take the form of diagrams, charts, maps, lexicons, diary entries, inventories, cosmologies and epistolary entreaties that plunge the viewer into alternate states of pathos and hope.
