For many, California is an idea, an escape, the Golden State of freedom and dreams. Henry White's paintings show the California that its natives cherish and its visitors fall in love with. The point of view of his paintings is that of one intimately familiar with the land; an observant admirer who has been exploring and loving California his whole life. The California we experience is particular; this oak studded hillside, this October evening made golden in the setting sun.
Each painting reflects a unique experience from the rolling Sonoma hills to crashing waves on the rugged coastline or the geologic abstraction of the high Sierra. Yet the paintings are more than the report of an ardent naturalist, they touch the soul of the land.
As he continues to paint the landscapes of the California and explore different approaches to depicting them he has been painting still lifes. These paintings combine objects and images in tableaux reflecting the artist's experiences and wider cultural connections.
Henry grew up in the east bay and has lived in Sonoma County for the last 35 years. He and his wife Diane currently live on the western edge of Petaluma.
