For over 20 years, Emily Eveleth has focused her artistic gaze on a single subject: the donut. Throughout her body of work, the pastry exists as a still life, a metaphor for consumption, or a fleshly stand-in for the human body, among many other interpretations. In Clasp, a light-filled jelly donut sits on a reflective surface, its insides exposed. As a meditation on color and light in painting, the piece possesses a surprising beauty and sensuality. Eveleth’s work is included in prominent museums, as well as corporate and private collections. She was the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Painting and a French Government Grant for the Artist-in-Residency Program in Rochefort-en-Terre, and she was a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome.
