About Ravi Avasti
Growing up in urban Britain prior to migrating to rural Victoria gave Ravi Avasti a particular vantage point from which to observe the discourse between person and land. By engaging nature over various time frames, Avasti reintroduces the land into the urban environment, reconnecting the viewer with the ephemerality of time and place.
With an art practice ranging from drawing to installation to earthworks, Avasti finds inspiration in natural phenomena and geography. Often referencing the moment of friction between events, his work is suggestive of dialogue or a lack thereof, and society’s quest for metaphysical solutions.
