Dominated by the figure the works of Jason Avery display a perspective that is nothing short of magnetic. Each piece has a unique point of view that prominently displays individual characteristics of the subjects, drawing the viewer in. The figures stand out against flat, abstract backgrounds which complicate the works with ambiguity and complexity. All this together underlines the importance of the individual's perception, how that notion surfaces within Avery's paintings, and it's prominence throughout. Jason Avery is an American artist based in San Francisco. He has exhibited his work extensively throughout California in addition to other cities around the US.
