Eric White (b. Ann Arbor, MI, 1968) received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990, and has shown extensively in galleries and museums around the world. Relying heavily on the dream-state, metaphysics, and 1940s era Hollywood for inspiration, White examines the boundaries of human perception in conceptually complex and expertly rendered oil paintings. He has served as adjunct professor at The School of Visual Arts in New York City since 2006. In 2010 White received a Painting Fellowship from The New York Foundation for the Arts. In 2009 he participated in the charitable group exhibition STAGES (which premiered in Paris and traveled to Miami and New York) to benefit the LIVESTRONG Cancer Foundation. A collection of his work, It Feeds Itself, was published in 2003, followed by a book based on his solo exhibition Who Are Parents? in 2005. He currently lives and works in New York City.
