Wayne White takes lithographic reproductions of classic landscapes as his canvases so that their kitsch iconography can serve as a suitable backdrop for the juxtaposition of his contemporary phrasing. White's letters grow out of the landscape in a surreal sort of way, at once organic yet also somewhat out of place. The phrases participate within their surroundings as best they can, providing an interpretation of both the scene and the contrast.
