This event has ended.

White’s art defies categorization—amalgamating abstraction, text, found objects, and clearly defined imagery—sometimes all within a single work. He employs a vast spectrum of media in his practice, ranging from spiral bindings, spray paint, and charcoal to at times inversed images of his own children’s drawings, calling into question artistic ownership. The highly-layered, textural, and often three-dimensional works embody the many faces of divergence—crisis and triumph, momentum and confinement, among many others, and challenge the viewer to locate the artist’s unconventional materials and artistic methods within the usual confinement of art history.

Closer inspection of the seemingly impromptu compositions unveils the meticulous labor and attention to detail in White’s work. This juxtaposition of bold and rapid gestures with those which take great care is intrinsic to the nature of his compositions. White’s radicality is expressed with joy and humor—creating serious work that doesn’t take itself seriously.
