The Philadelphia Inquirer described one of his paintings as,” imaginary scene engages the viewer in a direct, intimate, yet mysterious encounter”.
His latest release is, The golden thread: reflections on myth and memory, The introduction captures the essence of his art and text. “Convery’s reflections on mythic themes in images and text. His paintings, which cover a 25-year period, represent a combination of these themes with personal experience. Many of the paintings “draw references from specific, well-known stories”, but are intended to express “meaning related to contemporary life, rather than storytelling.”
In addition to his passion of painting, Convery is a poet. Two collections of his poems have been released. Passages of heart : poetry of the Unification movement and Travels on the night sea : an inner journey through a changeful era. Convery has performed his poetry at numerous venues in the Philadelphia area.
