Eric White is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. His expertly-crafted paintings resemble stills of old hollywood cinema (think Hitchcock), with perhaps a touch of Lynchian (as in David Lynch) subversion. He still somehow seems in touch with conceptual art. The work has more abstraction conceptually than appears on the surface. Although it most closely resembles a highbrow surrealist version of the Los Angeles Pop Surrealist movement.
White’s work reaches a high level: it’s very personal work, it has a strong level of ambiguity and depth, and it’s beautiful on the surface.
