‘MINDFIELDS’ by Chris White
24 November - 15 December
Chris White – ‘Mindfields’ is the first exhibition by a life-long left union and political activist, and a long-time artist. It is a retrospective of paintings over a 25 year period, with the focus on some of Chris’ more political works.
The exhibition was curated by Russell Starke who selected these paintings from the hundreds Chris has done over the past decades.
The title of this exhibition is a play on the words ‘mind’ and ‘minefields’.
Chris brings a raw and primitive energy to his work by employing a wide range of styles, brush strokes and colours: this is his mind at work. Primary colours dominate, dance and happily clash and wheel to create tension, emotion and message. They challenge to make their public take a hard look and to ask you to have a long think about their messages. You will be thinking about them long after you have left them behind.
Chris has a blog: topics covered in his paintings are discussed at length on chriswhiteonline.org
