Biography

Avery Singer’s iconographically complex airbrush paintings combine early 20th century aesthetics, 3D Computer modeling, cinematic pictorial space, and abstractions familiar to us from the digital world. Her compositions address light and space in the digital age. Investigating painting through the lay- ering of visual data and painterly techniques, she translates the limitless space and the illusion of depth from 3D modeling software into the analogue realm of the canvas.
