Charles Avery (Scottish, born 1973)
Charles Avery views his work as being divided into two areas; atomic and mystic. His ‘atomic’ works are abstract and geometrical and his ‘mystic’ works consist of figurative pencil drawings. Avery prefers to exhibit them together in order to explore questions raised in metaphysics, mathematics and philosophy. He is particularly interested in the work of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, from whom he took the idea of an atomic and mystic approach to art. Avery’s drawings are made entirely from his imagination, and although they appear to be part of a larger, unknown narrative, they are completely improvised. Born in Oban, Avery studied a foundation course at Chelsea College of Art in London, but he is largely self-taught as an artist.
