CHRISTOPHER DAVID WHITE
Christopher David White is a trompe l’oeil sculptor whose works are handmade predominantly from clay and rendered with acute attention to detail, often resembling decaying pieces of wood, rusted metal, and other objects in various stages of deterioration. These works explore the relationship between humanity and nature and how both are in a constant state of flux between growth and decay. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Indiana University in 2012. He went on to receive his Masters of Fine Arts in Craft/Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2015. He was the recipient of the Windgate Fellowship from the Center of Craft, Creativity and Design, and later was awarded ‘Most Environmentally Conscious’ at INLight 2014 hosted by 1708 Gallery. His work has been featured on several prominent art publications, including Juxtapoz, Beautiful Decay, My Modern Met, and This is Colossal. His work has been shown in galleries and museums internationally, including Daejeon Museum of Art and Suwon I-Park Museum of Art in South Korea, Abmeyer & Wood Gallery in Seattle, and Hartwick University’s Foreman Gallery in New York.
