Despite its title, and with the exception of Jared Buckhiester’s watercolor typology of half-naked football players and one magisterially constructed, transparently explicit Tom of Finland sketch, none of the work in this taut summer grouping of obsessive drawing and collage is particularly concerned with evasion or desire—except insofar as anything can be an evasion, and everything, once you’re looking for it, is desire.
