RUINS | SOLO SHOW | RECOAT GALLERY | GLASGOW | JUNE 2012
"Ruins" was Edinburgh based artist Al White's first solo exhibition, a series of drawings and collages exploring the dissolving structures and systems of half-formed utopias. The cracks in this parallel world are revealed through corrupted architectural grids and reassembled fragments of debris, creating a series of interlocking non-linear narratives.
Al White is currently based in Glasgow. He graduated from Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2011. He has since exhibited in several group exhibitions and was featured in Wallpaper Magazine's 2011 graduate directory. His work revolves around an imagined post-industrial world which has been steadily mutating and decaying since he first presented it in his degree show installation; a screen printed wooden structure housing a hypnotic video piece.
