Avery Palmer received his Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art from Humboldt State University and his MFA from San Jose State University.
Implying bizarre narratives, Avery Palmer’s sculptures and paintings encourage an engagement of the imagination. Influenced by surrealist painters such as Remedios Varo, his dreamlike combinations of figurative and architectural elements with other objects of ambiguous symbolism suggest stories emerging from the subconscious.
Palmer has shown his work in various galleries throughout the Bay Area including the Art Thou Gallery in Berkeley, the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco and the Kaleid Gallery in San Jose. His ceramics and paintings have been received with great success at the SOFA Chicago Fair, and Everyday Worlds: Interiors and Exteriors, de Young Museum, San Francisco, as well as the Ceramics Annual Conference 30 Ceramic Sculptors exhibition at the Natsoulas Gallery.
