Punk Camellia, 2021

A chapbook showcasing works featured at Art Miami 2021, ‘Punk Camellia’ is a spare and vibrant catalogue of recent canvases that subvert and expand upon the botanical motifs of Evangeline’s career-spanning Camellia series.

Margaret Evangeline, 2011

Buy Barnes & Noble

"Her artwork is exemplified by a devoted investigation of the in-between: emotion and perception, object and experience, component and concept. Her creative output also lies between disciplines, fluctuating from painting, sculpture, and site-specific installation, the extent of which is illustrated in this publication." - J. Beer, The Brooklyn Rail

"[...] takes the reader further into Evangeline’s mind and personality—how her works revolve around her sense of place and her need to be close to a river. Such nuances are picked up throughout the book and reveal an artist deeply attuned to what’s around her, unafraid to use a variety of mediums."- J. Parkey, Scultpure Magazine

Sabachthani, 2012

Buy Barnes & Noble

"This elegant, spare art book pairs black-and-white plates of two recent sculptural works with poems about grief, faith, and doubt during wartime. In 2011, Evangeline sent 20 aluminum bars to her son, who was completing his deployment in Iraq. He then recruited two soldiers to shoot the metal strips with their guns, creating punctures and puckers where the bullets passed through."- Publisher's Weekly
