Wendy White is known for work that expands the parameters of painting through the use of multiple canvases, sculptural additions, and site-specific installation. Inspired by the visual cacophony of her neighborhood of Chinatown in New York City as well as sports psychology, her works combine natural and synthetic materials, digital and analog marks, and fragments of text to comment on the glut of advertising, graffiti, and signage that coalesce to become iconic New York City vistas.
Solo exhibitions include Leo Koenig Inc., New York, NY; Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago, IL; Galeria Moriarty, Madrid, Spain; Van Horn, Düsseldorf, Germany; Maruani & Noirhomme, Brussels, Belgium. Her group exhibitions include Sotheby's S|2, Harris Lieberman, Nicole Klagsbrun, Fredericks & Freiser (all New York, NY); CCA Andratx, Mallorca, Spain; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, Nebraska, USA; Kunstverein Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin, Germany; Motus Fort, Tokyo, Japan; Aschenbach & Hofland, Amsterdam, NL; and Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. White is featured in the 2011 Phaidon publication Vitamin P2: New Perspectives in Painting.
