B. Avery Syrig (lives in New York)
Avery is a multi-media three-dimensional artist. Through her studies in ceramics, glass blowing, papermaking, performance, and video arts she has explored the development of individuality within the varying forms of structures – physical, familial, and societal- that have created the means and defined the ways that we live in our world today.
Always enjoying the process of making things, Avery began seriously studying two-dimensional art early on. Living in a world more attuned to object than image, she turned her instinctual collecting of things into painted collages featuring found objects coming off the page. This fueled her to go to an art school that respected many mediums – most importantly sculpture.
Education: Bachelor of Fine Arts, Alfred University, 2006 - 2010.
B. Avery Syrig has been chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #2 of the 2014 ArtSlant Showcase series.
