ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TOMMY WHITE

13 January – 10 February 2007

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 13, 6-8 pm

Harris Lieberman is pleased to present Tommy White’s second New York solo exhibition. In this new body of work, White presents large-scale oil paintings as well as a new series of painted photographs.

White’s interest lies in the universality of human experience. His abstracted figures in landscapes seem to emanate from inside the body and emerge from the canvas to confront viewers with imagery that is simultaneously repelling, sensual, and strangely familiar. These new paintings reveal an intensified interest in spatial compositions that slowly expand to communicate a range of emotions such as lust, violence, and regret.

In a new series of altered photographs White’s starting point is a group of his own sculptures. Using a camera to document the sculpture he then crops and reworks the image, creating a unique portrait similar to those in his paintings. The products of this multi-stage process combine photographic flatness with a glossy, painterly texture, and allude to the formal Modernism of Constructivist compositions and German Expressionism, while evoking the work of artists such as Hans Bellmer and László Moholy-Nagy.

Tommy White was born in 1970 in Kingsville, Texas. He received his M.F.A from Massachusetts College of Art. His first solo exhibition took place at Harris Lieberman in 2005.
