White Works comprises a series of works that are based upon the raw material for painting excluding paint. The work undertakes an investigation into the preconditions for painting, reconfiguring it in simple ways, creating subtle mataphors relating to the object of art in both meanings of the word. Lightness, emptiness and subtraction are here put forward as key aspects in dealing with the art object as a vessel for thought.
