Avery Singer (b. 1987), who was named for American painter Milton Avery (18851965) by her artist parents began using an airbrush in 2012 to expand onto canvas the geometric illustrations she composed in the open-source computer program SketchUp, a favorite of designers and architects for three-dimensional rendering.

Enlarging these imagined, gridded interiors by hand into paintings such as Screen Burn (2019) is a central part of the artist’s work, in which she deftly combines digital rendering and analog studio practice for a new generation.
