In EVOL (love spelled backwards), the audience is voyeur, peering into the delirious and erotic dreams of a young man (Oursler). We drift with him through anecdotes that poke fun at the disparity between the culturally accepted stereotypes of sex and love we are taught as children and the realities we discover in adult life.

“A dense linguistic framework of puns and multiple associations to complement his usual pictorial references to adolescent psychosexual neuroses. Low resolution heightens the most cherished myths of male sexual desire and performance.”

—Christine Tamblyn, “Whose Life Is it, Anyway?” Afterimage 15:1 (Summer 1987)
