"I have always used paintings and almost childlike sketches to distill and refine my architectural intentions.
Often there is a conceptual idea to get out of my system, other times it is feelings and emotions that
aren't present but are rather hidden below the surface. It is a very intuitive and messy process that produces
hunches or suspicions of ideas. In this light, the work lives in the world of shadows.
They are abstractions of what I don’t know or cannot completely see.
I also have a strange fascination with plaster. An architect's obsession with material.
The alchemy that takes places in a very brief amount of time has created some truly fascinating results
contrary to the process of making some of these casts that has bordered on the comical."
Brian White is an architect and artist. He grew up in West Virginia and the memories of his
childhood landscape along with his formal education combine to create his distinct perspective.
His imagery draws on primitive architectural themes including horizon, light, frame, shade and shadow.
His explorations, built spaces, sculptures, and paintings reference impressionism.
Most of the pieces are created in conjunction with ongoing architectural explorations
and are focused on simple shapes and abstract uses of color, light and atmospheric effects.
Brian has a Master of Architecture from Washington University in St. Loius and a
Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Tennessee.
He has studied and traveled extensively through Europe, South America and Asia.
He has two kids, a beautiful wife, and plays ultimate frisbee.
He is also a partner at architecturew.
