Living in France amongst different cultures naturally leads to working across various artistic disciplines. By merging contemporary forms of urban landscape and his Australian heritage across disciplines of drawing, painting, and collage the artist creates works often characterised by an awareness of surface and a preoccupation with the engagement of physicality and the found object. White’s work has broadly been attributed to the gestural forms of painterly abstraction, where the physical act of painting is key

White’s recent paintings consider collision points, blurs, diffusions, shifts and ruptures at the site of geopolitical and cultural boundaries, particularly in relation to global immigration crises. Echoing Edward Said’s identification of “the inextricable links” between Modernism, war and immigration.
