Info

GRIMM is pleased to announce Eric White’s (1968, Ann Arbor, MI, US) solo exhibition Triage at our New York gallery space. This marks the artist’s second solo show with the gallery. Presented are seven new oil paintings and one installation. In the downstairs gallery a presentation titled Relics is on view, showing some of White’s earlier works, a mixed media piece composed of 400 8-track cassette tapes and a group of trompe l’oeil paintings of reimagined vintage LPs.

Eric White’s work embodies the intersection of romanticized American dreams and the psychological paranoia that surrounds such fantasy. White’s paintings reference twentieth century film, music and pop culture backed by painterly adroitness to subvert and recode the dominant narratives of contemporary society. His hyper-intensive figurative paintings exist between American Realism and Surrealism and are evocative of fleeting lucid dreams.

Opening: Friday November 30th from 6-8pm
