John M. White

John M. White is a painter, sculptor and performance artist. Some years ago, while living in Solimar Beach, White began looking at the detritus washed up on the sand: seaweed, driftwood, shells, etc. The resultant paintings were poetic and suggestive rather than descriptive. They established the foundation for the three series he has recently produced: the large abstract paintings titled Bird Opera; the smaller black and white drawings on newsprint, Sinking Titanic with Short Stories; and the mid-sized mixed-media works, Selfie Notes with Pyramids, Portraits and Passing Clouds, that combine elements of the other two series, . The three titles are revealing. (excerpted from: Betty Brown, Color Dance: Recent Works by John White)

Considered one of the seminal California performance artists, White has staged hundreds of public performances since 1967, and is included in numerous public museum collections, including Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum in New York, La Foret Museum in Tokyo, and Total Museum Sponsored by the Getty. White was included in three major exhibitions, Museum of Contemporary Art curated by Paul Shimmel, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions , and Pomona.  Gallery Hours: Wed-Sun 10 am-5 pm
