David Avery
Mendacia Ridicula (The Wheel of Ixion)

2018

$500

About

Signed and numbered from the edition of 30. This is the fourth in a series of prints based on the sixteenth century engraver Hendrick Goltzius' "The Four Disgracers". 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.
