About

BIOGRAPHY:

Michelle Avery is an Adelaide based visual artist working predominantly with mixed media on canvas. Her works vary considerably‚ from surrealist influences and figurative works to the more raw and organic abstracts.
Her latest collection 'fluid’ explores soft lines and the beauty of colour tonality as it emerges naturally when mixing mediums at their most diluted - using inks‚ acrylics and water. Some of these paintings are purely abstract‚ with a core theme exploring the macro views of the world around us‚ reflecting aerial images from space‚ including global views of earth‚ the moon and solar flares. Others provide some structure to the very raw and organic base abstracts‚ exploring the notion of controlled chaos.
Michelle draws her rich colour palette from the natural world. Nature is a major influence and inspiration in her art practice and she strives to create artworks that connect the viewer with her interpretation of its beauty.
