"No End"
by sabine7 / May 28, 2007
Emi Avora’s oil paintings are rich offerings of monochromatic layers that result in portrayals of opulence and luxury. Avora has painted fantasy versions of ballrooms, theatres, opera houses and other such public spaces that are allowed to be completely over the top, and while slightly surreal, these paintings evoke the richness of heavy silks and velvets. Through the looking glass the viewer gets a glimpse of seemingly harmless decadence and excess, but only because the interiors are unpeopled.

Artist: Emi Avora
