Pae White

California artist Pae White’s new show at LA gallery 1301PE brought her work to my attention, surprisingly, for the first time. Her colorful, witty, and joyful work would suit a healthcare environment flawlessly. From the website of Sue Crockford Gallery, her gallery in New Zeland:

Drawn from an abundance of art historical and pop cultural sources, Pae White’s cascading mobiles evoke everything from schools of fish, flocks of birds, and teeming ponds, to Impressionist paintings with their myriad marks. White describes this body of work as “an exploration of movement contained.” Like “a waterfall on pause” the works are “a flurry of color and gentle movement, suspended for contemplation.”
