A physician and psychiatrist by training, Avery’s uses his art to explore subjects such as human rights abuses, social responses to disease (HIV in particular), death, sexuality, and the body. His Tamarind prints, linoleum cuts with lithography, address these tough subjects through the use of bold lines and an often-dizzying perspective.
