LAURISTON AVERY

LAURISTON AVERY

wildpalms is proud to present Lauriston Avery!

Avery, who lives and works in NY, extensively researches on secular materials, such as soil, mirror, sticks, fur. Translating them into a pictorial form that speaks with a uniquely sensual, rhythmic clarity. The works imply a process of mapping, the cellular body, aerial views of forgotten cities or mysterious constellations subjected to a manic ordering of addition and subtraction.
