Avelar expresses a divided allegiance between comedy and pathos, material and invention. Avelar’s impotent brushstrokes minimize the sense of dispirited dialogue between the portraitist and the universe, depicting humor and irony in every gesture.

"Media Naranja" is a Spanish saying that means my other half. Naranja means orange.
