March Avery

 

 Artist Statement/bio

Born into a family of artists, March Avery began making her own work at a very young age. She grew up in Greenwich Village with her parents Milton Avery and Sally Michel Avery and was surrounded by artists. Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Barrett Newman, among others were frequent visitors to the Avery home. March has said, “I knew no one but artists, so I knew that is all I would ever want to be”. She went on to evolve a style that is distinctly original, emerging from direct observation of the visual world around her. Her subjects include abstract imagery of friends, family and everyday events, interpreted in simple forms and flat planes of vibrant color.
