Carl White

Born in Liverpool, England in 1969, Carl White studied painting, drawing and graphic design at the Alberta College of Art + Design from 1989-1992 in Calgary, Alberta. White currently lives and works in Calgary, Alberta where he is exceedingly active in the art scene, as well as the community.

In the way that a poet would seek to understand language with the goal of approaching the sublime, I have tried to understand painting with similar purpose. The ability to move beyond the literal towards a truth. The tools of a painter are akin to that of a poet, words and their placement, language and its rhythm. I am painting poems, images that dance between realism and abstraction, text and flesh, with the hope that the viewer experiences rather than views.

Né en 1969 à Liverpool, en Angleterre, Carl White a étudié la peinture, le dessin et le graphisme à l'Université d'Alberta en Art et Design de 1989 à 1992 à Calgary. White vit et travaille à Calgary, en Alberta, où il est extrêmement actif sur la scène artistique, ainsi que dans sa communauté.

"Dans la façon dont un poète chercherait à comprendre un language dans le but d'approcher le sublime, j'ai essayé de comprendre la peinture avec un regard similaire. La capacité de dépasser le latéral vers une vérité universelle. Les outils d'un peintre sont semblables à ceux d'un poète, les mots et leurs place dans une phrase, d'un language et de son rythme. Je peins des poèmes, des images qui dansent entre le réalisme et l'abstrait, entre le texte et le contenu, avec l'espoir que le spectateur fasse parti de l'expérience plutôt que de ne la contempler.
