American artist, Walace Whitney was born in Boston and now works and lives in New York. He completed his Masters in Fine Arts at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts. Over the last decade he has exhibited extensively across the US and is featured in the publication Monaural, with poems by Joel Felix.
Whitney’s paintings are described as muscular, painted with the body, alternating from quick shifts of push/ pull, to slow readings of deep space…following paint which is dragged or dribbled into and on the skins of surfaces. A felt expressionism inhabits these paintings: marks and flows accruing into a record of change and weather, a collection of moments. Whitney’s colors are deep and tonal, corresponding to nature, but more directly to emotional states of mind.
