Influenced by a diverse range of artists including Alexander Calder and the West Coast nun Sister Corita, multimedia artist Pae White merges art, design, and craft in works that transform ordinary materials into ephemeral objects and installations. For Smoke Knows (2009), a cotton and polyester tapestry that depicts a plume of smoke—the immateriality of the subject contrasting with the physicality of the fabric—White worked from photographic images of smoke. She has also created site-specific installations from vast quantities of yarn, and hanging mobiles composed of fragments of hand painted cardboard or hexagonal pieces of mirror suspended on string. Other works include cobwebs that White spray paints and affixes to paper.
