Jeran Avery - paintings & drawings

Exhibition opens Thursday, October 1, 6-9pm. runs through the month of October

Jeran Avery paints abstraction in the most representational forms. His interest is in a realm where fine art fuses with popular culture: Comic books, graphic novels, tattoos, hot-rods. The drawings on exhibit relate to the familiar visual sequences found in comic books or comic-based media by abstracting the intense essence of the comic book, eliminating the story, characters and colors.

His goal is to question the nature of representation itself. At what point do the most familiar things become abstracted? Can you hold the tension between subtle abstraction and complete departure from the naming subject?
