Our eyes tell our stories, but not always the obvious ones. BENDER explores Neil White's confrontation of identities produced by self-imposed constructions of reality. White's paintings drip with duality from color and form to intent and representation. What else would one expect from an artist working in finance and a homosexual raised by Mormons?
Postscript: On the final day of this exhibition, Neil spontaneously quit his job at Goldman Sachs to travel the world and make art. He now lives a comfortable, creative life in San Francisco, alternately coding and painting whenever he wants.
