Exhibition Summer 2020
“In life, I believe we all create, we all tell stories, we all share and cherish memories.
I believe we all derive meaning from and ascribe meaning to places and the landscape around us. We all have some sense of inheritance and legacy.
I believe everyone is a special kind of artist.
I believe we share primal creative responses to landscape and seascape. Increasingly I have produced work exploring these themes in which I have been the significant creative driver, the lead artist”.
From Richard White “Manifesto”
“As a Second Generation Holocaust Survivor I am trying to make sense of my family’s past, exploring issues of identity, memory, loss, and displacement. I am interested in family histories, memorials, testimony and the silences we all carry and have been shaped by. The notion of inherited trauma is at the core of my work.
My practice has a forensic dimension, an emotional archaeology in which traces, fragments and memories are the starting points; work evolves intuitively. I explore and select the media most able to evoke the feelings I wish to communicate. Selecting and combining media forms is part of my creative process.
My work intends to give the viewer a transformative and immersive experience and aims to create a tension and energy within a contemplative space”.
