March Avery

In a career spanning decades, March Avery has captured a number of traditional painterly subjects – from portrait to still life to landscape – all in her inimitable style and approach to color. Often working in strong, contoured passages of color, Avery distills her subject matter to its essence, shifting color away from naturalism for emotional effect. Resting on the Grass simplifies the classical subject of a reclining female figure with contoured shapes of cool blue surrounded by a vibrant field of grass. Avery lives and works in New York, and her work is represented in a number of public collections, among them the Brooklyn Museum, New Britain Museum of American Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Woodstock Artists Association & Museum.
