Laissez Faire Charles Avery Limited Edition Print


Exclusive limited edition print to National Galleries of Scotland

Laissez Faire, CHARLES AVERY b.1973 GMA 5130. Signed and numbered.

The Scottish artist Charles Avery is one of the most interesting contemporary artists, with a considerable international reputation.

Specially commissioned for the Gallery of Modern Art’s 50th anniversary, the artist has generously agreed to make a limited edition print available to Gallery visitors and friends.

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.
