ALL SMILES - BY RUSS WHITE
ALL SMILES is a collection of new colored pencil drawings on panel, capturing abstracted portraits and studies of the skulls underneath them. At a time when we are facing a rising tide of white Christian fascism, the skull felt like an appropriate subject for portraiture – a reminder of our limited time and an embrace of rich, vibrant color in spite of that. There is a magic and a mystery to this ludicrous life, if only we’d notice it.
Russ White is an artist and writer living in Minneapolis. Using primarily colored pencils and mixed media collage, White creates drawings that teeter between photorealistic rendering and expressive abstraction, attempting to unpack some of the privileges and prejudices around bodies, identities, and ideologies.
