Anything else is just an accounting by the whims of taste. I think for ultimate satisfaction an artist should be steadfast in their work and totally committed to personal vision.”
White’s recent retrospective show, “EQUILIBRIUM” which explored over 50 years of his creative endeavors was held at the Maloof Foundation this past year. The show included works from all the chapters of his artistic life. His organic modernist style takes cues from the sinuous shapes of nature. The show underscored that this artist is a master of many mediums. The exhibit told a clear story of White’s artistic exploration when he stepped outside of the Maloof Studio and entered his own. Many of White’s sculptures are currently on view in the gardens.
