About Carl White

British born painter living in Canada. Represented across canada in Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, and

Carl White's own passionate experiences gained through a life long relationship with art are presented with intensity and rhythm of form, colour and text. "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," says White. "I am painting poems, images that dance between realism and abstraction, text and flesh, with the hope that the viewer experiences rather than views." White achieves this effect well, as we are drawn into the world of art and history in all their rich fullness when looking at his work.
