Artist Crush: Wendy White

May 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment

Wendy White, who lives and works in NYC,┬áhas described her style as “retro yet futuristic, inherently urban, reactive and rebellious, but also humble and DIY.” White’s paintings are inspired by the frenetic pace and oft-changing landscape of the artist’s home in Chinatown.

“There’s a great deal of bravado in her art, and sometimes a kind of frantic energy, but also fragility, self-consciousness and doubt… The painting’s repleteness seems all the greater for their ability to encompass emptiness.” – Barry Schwabsky, Vitamin P2, Phaidon, 2011.
