Consisting primarily of large scale colored pencil drawings and sculptural installations, my work is fundamentally about who we are as individuals and as a society. In a national climate that is increasingly divisive, in which many people feel perfectly at ease with — sometimes proud of — their own ignorance and indignation, I am interested in encouraging empathy, wonder, and reflection on what makes us human, in all our filth and our glory. My work attempts to explore contemporary life in all its complexity: it is at once funny and somber, personal and political, comically bright and darkly serious.
I’ve had a studio in the basement at Casket Arts for the past six years and look forward to seeing you all again once we’re back to some semblance of normal! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram @russwhiteart or online at russ-white.com.
