Anthony White

 

Born in Sydney, Australia in 1976, lives and works in Paris

 

White’s painting practice is exploring the intersection of historical and current social issues and how they relate to the production of contemporary images. His practice is a sustained enquiry into the relations-hip between Modernism and colonialist concepts of empire. In doing so, he asserts the role of the artist as inherently political and urges us to consider the role
of artistic interventions in the current climate.

 

White’s works are often characte-rised by an acute aware-ness of surface and a preoccupation with the engagement of physicality and the found object.

 

He was the recipient of the two year travelling scholarship the Marten Bequest during 2007.
He has also received international prizes and residency programmes in Paris, Leipzig,Vermont and Latvia in art centres and museum contexts.


During 2017 he was selected to participate in a painting symposium at The Mark Rothko Centre and subsequently the museum acquired two of his works
for their permanent collection.
He has been commissioned to make new works and acquired in both public and private collections
internationally including the Soho House Art Collection in London and The Tweed Regional Gallery Tweed
Heads, Australia.
