Roger White: Inherently Paintable Moment

Ross Simonini interviews artist Roger White.

White comments: "I feel that even when I’m working more or less abstractly it’s still a picture. It’s still engaged in the question, 'What does it mean to represent some thing in the world in some way?' And without that question I’m totally lost as an artist. I started my training as an artist through observational painting and drawing, and that seems, for me, right now, a more complicated problem than that of making abstract paintings. I can’t personally get enough intellectual perspective on what an abstract painting is in order to think of it only in those terms… you have to be engaged with a more polemical discussion about what painting is in order to really make abstract paintings now. Or a spiritual one. And I’m not doing either. I’m much more interested in what things look like."
