The Latin word "averto" means to turn away or aside. My latest series of works on canvas and paper by that name (AVERTO) draws inspiration from that very act. The work depicts Oedipus, the mythological king of Thebes, and his subjects as they turn away from the awful fate that has gripped their kingdom. See a full description of the new work by clicking on any of the canvases below.
