  • Sean Kelly Gallery - James White News
    the finely wrought luminous black and white oil paintings for which he is well known White s commitment to an apparent tradition of representational painting imbues his work with a fundamental permanence underscoring the continuity in moments of silence doubt and repose that have been the subject of art for centuries whilst profoundly updating its implications Painted on aluminum wood or plastic his work has its origin in snapshot photographs taken of his environment both domestically and when travelling a door that is slightly ajar a glass of water left on a bathroom sink a broom leaning against a wall The objects in the paintings imply a narrative arc that similar to a cutaway shot in film creates a psychological space for reflection on actions that lie outside the frame White s masterfully rendered moments of everyday life bear comparison to the quietude of paintings by the Flemish masters and Lucian Freud s early interiors whilst the distilled forms that inhabit them reflect a more contemporary ritualized minimalist sensibility James White received his BA from the Wimbledon School of Art in 1989 and his MA from the Royal College of Art in 1991 Recent solo exhibitions include The Black Mirror
