Kristian Evju is a Norwegian artist known for making exquisitely detailed pencil drawings and paintings.
Much of Evju's work focuses on change, I have selected works from a couple of his collections here including Punchcard, a series of drawings examining a near-distant past in which tech that was once so groundbreaking (punchcard computers) is already a place we cease to understand.
Evju's pencil drawings are incredibly realistic, but include an element of the surreal to force the viewer to think. The drawings are so realistic they often feel like collages, but the use of regular recurring isometric pattens confuses, Evju uses this motif to reflect the changes to language that new technology creates but also reflects how that can disappear - there's a time when RAM, Port and Resolution used to mean a very different thing.
Our ongoing revision of our sense of reality constitutes a kind of mental re-telling - a narrative - and so there might be certain elements of invention, or suspension of disbelief, applied to aid in the narration of our own lives.
