WALLACE WHITNEY

BIOGRAPHY

Wallace Whitney (b. 1969, Boston, USA) lives and works in the Bronx. He received a MFA from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY and a BA from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. Additionally, Whitney is a cofounder of the pioneering CANADA gallery in the Lower East Side of New York City. The artist is represented by Horton Gallery, where he has been featured in a solo exhibition, a group exhibition, and an art fair including a solo presentation at The Armory Show, New York.

The unmediated and improvisational quality in Wallace Whitney’s paintings likens each of them to scientific residue or psychic mementos. They serve as witnesses to the gesture, evidence of the body, and as a reaffirmation of the intrinsic materiality of painting. Whitney has inherited a strong gestural sense from artists like Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, yet his disarming, discordant use of color, line, and pictorial depth are evocative of Hans Hofmann or Philip Guston. The artist’s sensitivity to his immediate surroundings and landscape root the works in the moment; from the wash of LaGuardia jet traffic in the sky to the defiantly scarred street trees, flocks of noisy feral parrots, and the outcrops of Bronx bedrock coated in spray paint, Whitney folds these fragments from daily life into formally rich and poetically generous abstract pictures.
