Ghost Stories originated through gestural line drawings, which refer to forms and fields of energy. In relation to these origins, materials, fields, figures, color, gesture, and surface, along with life’s conditions, reinforce and subvert those original drawings.
John Howell White’s ethereal work gives a nod to the organic forms of abstract expressionists like Joan Mitchell and Willem De Kooning, while also exploring the line quality and structure of earlier artists such as Paul Klee and Joan Miró. He writes: “I am interested in paintings as contemplative spaces. For many years, like many people with complicated lives, my painting moments have been wedged between work, family and civic life. The scale and the content of these paintings provide effective opportunities for this practice.”
Archer Law and InLiquid Art and Design are both dedicated to a meaningful partnership and a shared mission to support local artists in the region and to deliver rich visual content to help foster a vibrant creative community. The 21,665 square foot space at Archer Law will feature a grand wall that will house the rotating art collections. The gallery wall named, Archer Gallery 35, will be transformed every quarter with a new collection from a local artist. In addition, InLiquid will install the new art pieces in the offices and will work with the Archer team to select different pieces that fit the office design.
