Anthony White is an Australian artist based in Paris, France. In this latest body of work, 'Scratching the Surface', which White created while on a residencey in Leipzig, Germany in early 2011, the artist explores notions of colour, tension between materials and the abstract concept of space and form. Inspiration comes both from the heritage of German expressive abstraction movement of the early 20th century, White's Australian background feeds into the choice of pallette, anchored by his present influence of the streetscapes of Paris.
Relying on a emotive response to his surroundings provides White with a veritable smorgasboard of material, the titles of the works hint at influences that inspire him to create, or comment on the world in which the artist finds himself inhabiting.
Anthony White is a graduate of the National Art School, Sydney and has exhibitied in 2011 in London and Hong Kong. This is his second solo exhibition with Iain Dawson Gallery.
