Avery Singer's (b. 1987) first solo exhibition with Hauser & Wirth has opened at their New York location. ⁠⁠

Singer's distinctive paintings utilise industrial automation, three-dimensional computer modelling software, and traditional painting techniques.⁠⁠

Titled Reality Ender, the apocalyptic works draw on disparate contemporary iconography: JUUL Pods; Wojak Memes; and China Chalet, a now-closed New York dim sum restaurant and legendary queer nightlife mecca.⁠⁠

Larger-scale paintings are priced at $1.2million. As Nate Freeman has noted in Vanity Fair, 'at just 34, Singer remains the most expensive millennial artist on earth'.
