Brian Dupont writes about Wendy White's latest exhibition Pix Vää at Leo Koenig, Inc, New York, on view through October 20, 2012.
Dupont writes: "Wendy White's paintings have always walked a fine line between abstraction and real world reference, between gestural immediacy and polished construction. She does not walk an easy path in painting. As an artist interested in mining the dense marks and language of the urban environment, married with a concern for contemporary abstract painting, the easiest thing in the world would be to embrace a provisional aesthetic of rough materials and utilitarian supports. Instead, she has maintained a dedication to craft that is born of constructing the elements of her work in her studio, herself."
