David Avery
Concerning The Great Ship MOUR-DE-ZENCLE (17/20)

2016

$650

About

Signed and numbered from the edition of 20. Avery's prints often mix elements of myth, legend and history with his own light touch of surrealism. “MOUR-DE-ZENCLE” is from Alfred Jarry’s "The Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, Pataphysician," derived from the French language of the 16th century similar to Rabelais. “Mour” is perhaps in modern terms, “automobile exhaust pipe”; “zencle” is “scythe”, that is: “capitalism”. The wake of this ship is the desert called “Commonly Accepted Ideas”, unencumbered as it is by any intimation of thought or imagination. David Avery continues to explore the expressive and technical possibilities inherent in black and white line etching. His work is included in the collections of the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, the New York Public Library, the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Stanford University Library among others, and has been noted in the New York Times. Even though “black and white doesn’t sell”, he has eschewed the use of color, finding the subtleties and tonalities of black and white most capable of creating the psychological mood that allows his work to be effective.
