JAMES WHITE : BODIES
Nov 22, 2017 - Jan 13, 2018
Blain|Southern presents BODIES, an exhibition of new paintings by James White.
 
White’s grey scale paintings explore everyday minutiae and hint at something that has happened or may occur. Fleeting moments from intimate, domestic scenes are paused, extended and captured by the artist in meticulous detail.
 
The references for the paintings are the artist’s own photographs; stripped of their original colour, the painting shifts focus onto subject and technique. Reminiscent of crime scene photography, ‘The paintings are forensic in the manner of their image-capture, the documentary-no-expense-spared monochrome…’1. Tightly cropped, they are suggestive of incidents beyond the frame, alluding to a human presence without depicting any individuals.
