Sensory Deprivation Tank (empty), 2018

Avery Singer uses three-dimensional modeling software to create the underdrawings for her canvases, then applies acrylic paint with an airbrush. Her immaculate gray surfaces create an aesthetic confusion between the historical and the contemporary, and blur the lines between mediums. In Sensory Deprivation Tank (empty) Singer expertly renders drips and smears throughout the picture plane to imply the handprints and watermarks that appear on glass surfaces during and following a steamy shower.
