Carla Repice probes the effects of racism and dehumanization on the human psyche. She aims to expand and deepen what and how meanings of whiteness are transferred, understood and shared through the language of painting. Using found images online as reference, the paintings stand at a distance from the photographs, but not to the subject matter, witnessing a complex narrative of targets, shields, divisions, violences, and other social forces shaped by Western thought. "The White Problem" points to the exposed underbelly of paranoia, individualism and rage in Trump’s America.
"The White Problem" is the final exhibition of "Solos x3," a rotating series of three solo exhibitions. The exhibition will run at Equity Gallery from May 16 through May 25, 2019.
