Invisible Ruler: Paintings by Wayne White
Oversized, three-dimensional text painted onto cheap landscape paintings he finds at thrift stores and markets giving them second life.
Everything you try as an artist sticks with you and is in your work, and I’ve tried a lot—cartooning, illustration, set design, puppeteering, animation, sign painting, etc. It all still reverberates in the work I’ve done as a fine artist. [Invisible Ruler] is my 14-year investigation into the confluence of words and images, my ongoing love of drawing on paper, and the relics of my trips across the country creating fun-house puppet and sculptural installations.On view at Joshua Liner Gallery Sept. 11 – Oct. 11.
