Untitled (The Square Circle), 2016 by Charles Avery limited edition screen-print
Limited edition screen-print Untitled (The Square Circle), 2016 by Scottish artist Charles Avery, 8 colour screen-print with gold leaf lettering on 300 gsm Dreadnought grey paper signed and numbered by the artist. Produced as part of an expanding collection of work by Avery with the ‘Island’ belief systems and aesthetics in mind and can be seen adorning the fictional characters and spaces of Onomatopoeia in Avery's drawings.
The Island is located at the centre of an archipelago of innumerable constituents. The gateway to the Island is the town of Onomatopoeia, once the stepping off point of the pioneers who first came to the place, turned colonial outpost, turned boom town, bustling metropolis, depression ravaged slum, and regenerated city of culture and tourist destination.
This large series of works created within a specific framework is rooted in Avery's own life and upbringing on the Isle of Mull off the West coast of Scotland and could be interpreted as a philosophical meditation on art-making and different ideas of truth.
Scottish artist Charles Avery is one of the most interesting contemporary artists at present, with a considerable international reputation. Since 2004, the Scottish artist Charles Avery (1973, Oban, UK) has dedicated himself to the invention of an imaginary island, new corners of which he continues to chart through drawings, sculptures and texts.
