Take only what You Need From Me - Todd White
Edition Of 135
Todd White's stylish and distinctive figurative artwork has won him an international reputation that keeps on growing. His paintings captivate people, often invoking laughter and always demanding repeated viewings. By revealing his subjects' innermost feelings, he creates timeless scenes of attraction and intimacy. Beneath the exaggerated features and textured skin of his characters there is a truth that we can all recognise - both theirs and ours.
Todd is a compulsive observer of detail, always studying and absorbing figures, faces and features. He spends his life people-watching - scribbling down sketches whatever the situation (often on napkins or even tablecloths) to record an idea for his next work. While his subjects come from everyday life, his perspective is so unusual that he alters the way we perceive people and the roles we play around each other. He studies body language, using its nuances to capture the subtleties of what we show and what we hide.
