A Landscape Unique

Mark White

Mark White's no stranger to working on metal - after all, his renowned kinetic wind sculptures are constructed of copper, stainless steel, and at one point, aluminum; this last material is his preferred surface for the following patina-on-metal paintings.

Mark selects smooth aluminum panels, custom-cuts them to his desired dimensions, then uses industrial engraving tools to achieve incredible, multi-dimensional effects that shimmer across the work's surface. The visual effect is disarmingly kinetic, in that the colors and light seem to move across the surface of the painting in an animated, glistening way.

In works like Prairie Light III, [see above] White's meticulously rendered lower grass border seems to actually waver and shift before our very eyes, mimicking the breezy rush of wind through autumn's russet grasses.

Annual trips to Malibu are veritable meccas for White, who spends ours on the beach sketching the shoreline -- a decided departure from the rich colors but arid climes of the artist's Santa Fe home. Mark's newest works, A Distant Shore, above, and Silver Dawn, below, were inspired not by Southern California however, but in fact by Southern Florida. An October venture to the sunshine state provided Mark with a fresh - and Atlantic! - interpretation of the ocean.

Billowing clouds glint and gleam in the light, interrupted by a brilliant orange horizon line in the middle, and finally the lazy stretch of waves below.
