ARTIST TALK, Woodrow White

White (son of former AIRs Wayne White and Mimi Pond) discusses his paintings, which take a light-hearted, jab at history and artifice. Heavy on kitsch, humor, and a strong LA aesthetic, his works place slightly off-kilter scenarios in museums and on movie sets.

Woodrow White is a September Artist-in-Residence

“My work experiments with the failure of the illusion, examining the nexuses of narrative, history and artifice. Palette, subject matter and personal connections inform the dual nature of each tableau. Through the realm of kitsch, such as museums and movie sets, I aim to connect these subjects to a conversation about painting and illusory art, at a time when all trust in images has been lost.”
