Anthony White’s practice encompasses painting, collage and printmaking through which he explores the intersection of societal issues, both current and historical, and how these relate to the production of contemporary image making. His research-based approach to painting is combined with an awareness of surface and a preoccupation with the engagement of physicality and the found object. White’s recent research has been concerned with the phenomenon of Empires – particularly Rome and its influence on the French Republic – as part of a broader investigation into the ways in which empires construct narratives to promote and propagate ideology.
