Billy White, Untitled (Willie Mays), 2018
Billy White
Jan 9 – Feb 6, 2021
Adams and Ollman
Portland, Oregon USA

Adams and Ollman is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Billy White. Marking the artist’s first solo exhibition on the West Coast, the show will feature a selection of his expressive portraits made between 2016 and 2019.With graphic marks and emphatic colors, White conjures portraits that are celebratory and personal. Muscular and energetic brushstrokes coalesce to form complex images that are more emotional than representational. White’s subjects include his family and himself, as well as iconic figures from the worlds of film, television, music, sports, and art history. Captured in profile and at the front of the picture plane, each figure appears isolated, their likeness distilled to essential elements and forms assembled with bold lines and gestures. Often with unexpected shifts in perspective, the resulting works are psychologically-charged depictions of the human form.

Since 1994, Billy White has worked at Nurturing Independence Through Artistic Development (NIAD), a progressive art studio in Richmond, California, that supports the careers of artists with disabilities.

Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)
