Laissez Faire illustrates a scene from Avery’s imaginary "Island", a mythical place of philosophical inquiry and narrative invention. Avery illustrates the red-light district of his island, showing an "empiricist" philosopher being taunted to "experience something new". With wit and skill, Laissez-Faire bears witness to Avery’s masterful draughtsmanship and sense of humour.
