Solo exhibition, Gamut Gallery, April 2-23, 2016
A solo show of large scale colored pencil drawings, photographs, and sculptural installtions, "Macro Machines" is fundamentally about what forms us as individuals and as a society. The work reflects on childhood stresses and assumptions, attitudes about our national climate, and our difficult relationship with the natural world. It is at once funny and somber, personal and political, cartoonishly bright and darkly real.
"In his complicated setups, the cars act out traumas of modern life, often to wry or darkly comic effect." - Mary Abbe, Star Tribune
"With a coy sense of humor and a personal touch, the pieces challenge our current world with whimsy." - Sheila Regan, City Pages
"The large-scale works, a play on the tiny Micro Machine toys of White’s childhood, stand in for larger social institutions like the military, policy and the school system." - Eric Best, Southwest Journal
