Gallery Review: Wayne White

Wayne White is known for his playful and colorful word paintings and imaginative sculptures that transform his fun drawings into 3 dimensions so his latest exhibit entitled "I'M HAVING A DIALOGUE WITH THE UNIVERSE AND YOU'RE JUST SITTING THERE" at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC was well worth visiting.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite works as we have been studying White's work for the last few years and it consistently delivers with a unique, interesting sense of humor.

White's latest show was creatively exhibited with large cartoonist hands holding and displaying many of the paintings along with a really cool kinetic word sculpture resembling an old school weathervane.

The show was great but it felt a bit like an addendum to last years exhibit that was a bit more impressive with it's large scale sculpture and backroom installation.
