The work of Wendy White is permeated by iconographic characters, large writing and sport brands,metabolised and used by the artist as archetypes of a personal pictorial code. Her works deal with historical periods in American culture, urban enviroment and questions of boundaries within society, both physical and philosophical. The fluorescent colour animated by paintbrush and spray gun, together with the solid elements like beams or other 3D forms, articulates itself in the overlap of layers in order to escape the classic dynamic of two-dimensional. The works are ripe with contamination and street elements, combining themes of consumerism and gender with references to social subcultures, all in the process of creating a positioning and relevant visual approach without wagging of the finger.
