About Eric White
Eric’s approach to figuration is both beautiful and disturbing. Whether expressed blatantly or in a subtler manner, his work attempts to tap into those realities and dimensions that exist beyond the fringe of our perception. Referencing found imagery (often that of 40′s era Hollywood), his own photographs and his unpredictable imagination, he creates “paintings about films about dreams about the neighbors.” Painstakingly rendered with impeccable craftsmanship, White’s work often emulates the varying planes of focus and multiple exposure of the photographic process. This combination of themes and technique produces complex, refined environments that are at once multi-dimensional, two dimensional, perilous and inviting. Eric White was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990 (EarlMcGrathGallery).
