The Hospital Club and artrepublic present Natural Selection by Dave White
Internationally acclaimed artist, Dave White, is to unveil a new collection of work, in association with limited-edition gallery artrepublic, at The Hospital Club, London in June 2012.
The Natural Selection exhibition will comprise a large-scale installation of oil paintings, works on paper and limited editions that will exclusively reveal White’s new subject matter; an exploration of threatened animal species presented in the artist’s trademark dynamic and kinetically charged aesthetic.
White says of this series of work:
‘Natural Selection encompasses the beauty, majesty and magnificence of incredibly rare animals. Their threatened existence hangs in the balance, where natural camouflage is no longer a reliable defence, leaving them vulnerable and exposed. The collection explores these dynamics, through the violent, expressive movement and abstracted patination of oil paint and water colour. Large scale installations and contemporary execution will aim to challenge the viewer to reassess this subject matter in our modern world. Where once we would hunt these subjects for display trophies, now we must face the fact that our impact upon them is threatening their very survival.’
