Dave White 'Americana' Exhibition 11 - 30 April 2011
Début Art & The Coningsby Gallery are proud to announce the solo exhibition of Dave White’s latest collection of paintings: ‘Americana’ (see above for a snapshot). Inspired by American heritage and the spirit of the West, this body of work features oil paintings in White’s trademark expressive style.
Exploring iconic imagery of the Western Frontier, this exhibition highlights Dave White’s ability to capture dynamic scenes with his distinctive impasto style, while presenting a pioneering approach to documenting the legacy of this era.
The golden age of the Western movie era is encapsulated in Dave White’s series of Technicolour oil paintings. High energy scenes, dramatic tension and sweeping Western backdrops could be said to be White’s innovative interpretation of the classic film still. The cultural inspiration of this period is evident in the apocalyptic themes of battles and stand offs. The turbulence and explosive movements are animated and presented through chaotic brushstrokes and the continuous energy of an artist dedicated to his own battle with the canvas.
The exhibition will feature a series of new oils on canvas, works on paper and limited edition prints. A fully illustrated catalogue will also be available.
