Lives and works in Paris

Anthony White's latest body of work Ghost Series is a fascinating journey into the power of abstract painting. Created in his studio outside Paris post covid lockdown, the artist draws on his response to the natural world whilst subliminally overlaying broader social events—both contemporary and historical.
White is deeply humanist in all aspects of his practice. The intensity of his vision reveals itself through the intertwining and deceptively simple morphing colour forms. The translucent coloured glazes of ribboned paint twist throughout the picture plain reminding us of the importance of colour and colour relationships—the way we feel things beyond the purely analytical.
Anthony White is currently exhibiting his first museum show titled Mobilising Material at the renowned Mark Rothko Centre in Latvia. The artist’s career as a significant and important emerging abstractionist in Europe is gaining momentum.
