Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Charles Avery

"Charles Avery is one of the most exciting new artists to emerge in the UK in recent years. Born in Mull in 1973, Avery has worked across a range of different media – using large-scale drawings, models, diagrams and text – his work throughout being characterised by what has been described as 'formal beauty, humour and a spirit of philosophical enquiry.' His most high profile project to date was the epic 'Islanders', where, over a ten year period and inspired by his childhood on the Inner Hebrides, he described the topography and cosmology of an imaginary island."
