Unique and compelling, figurative artist Eric White’s works are exquisitely rendered “paintings about dreams about films.” Using found imagery – often from Hollywood’s Golden Age – White layers image upon image to create paintings that are at once surreal and hyperreal. In his 2004 solo exhibition “Who Are Parents?” White applied this approach to the theme of childhood memories, divorce, parental authority, and disappointment. In this expanded catalog, the artist further explores the perception of family through paintings from the show, additional work, personal photographs, and other contributions.
