Oil on canvas.

White’s colour palettes draw inspiration from the masters using darker tones, dramatically contrasted with high illumination to bring figures to the foreground, whilst embracing a contemporary aesthetic.

For this series, White opted to work with one model only, which in turn has formed a dialogue and understanding between the artist and model. This relationship has given the artist freedom to explore specific themes such as the contradictions of strength and vulnerability in the human form. This exploration can be seen within the combination of almost classical poses with strong light sources, dynamic compositions and use of negative space, which in turn highlight and reinforce the physicality and exposed nature of the model.
