Jason Stopa interviews painter Wendy White whose show Double Vanity is on view at Sherrick & Paul in Nashville, through June 13, 2015.

White comments: "In a way, I think all my work challenges the very basic notion that anything truly exciting can happen within the stupid rectangle. I like putting painting in a subservient position, making it surrender to the bigger picture—a frame, the architecture of the gallery, a fabricated sign or an abutting photograph. For me, that intersection is where larger meaning resides."
