About Eric White

In his cinematic paintings, Eric White presents photorealistic scenes with a surreal visual twist. For source materials, White turns to 1940s-era Hollywood films and film noir; he also claims inspiration from David Lynch’s darkly humorous TV series Twin Peaks. Compressing a sequence of events into a single moment, White creates claustrophobic scenes populated by glamorous figures locked in ambiguous psychological drama. As he explains: “There are psychological issues going on, and metaphysical things happening, and self-reflection and alienation and anxiety and all the stuff that I enjoy.”

American, b. 1968, Ann Arbor, Michigan, based in New York, New York
