Descrizione Opera / Biografia

David Avery continues to exploit the constraints inherent in traditional black and white line etching in his studio in San Francisco for his own suspect purposes. His work is included in the collections of the Library of Congress, 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 Washington Post and the New York Times.
The Last Roundup is a hard ground etching done on copper. It alludes to both the monstrous drolleries which Bosch used to indicate moral turpitude, as well as Stefano della Bella’s works depicting death carrying off victims of the plague, in order to comment on those who actively promote the need to extract fossil fuels no matter what the environmental and social cost, and without regard to the obvious unsustainability of continuing to do so.
