Wayne White is a Los Angeles-based artist. Having begun his career as a production designer for Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, White is now recognized for his clever and beautifully rendered text paintings. As a wordsmith and draftsman extraordinaire, White juxtaposes irreverent and humorous phrases with the pastoral scenes of existing thrift-store paintings to create something all together new and always compelling. Tuesday Evenings focuses on the work featured in the recently published monograph, Maybe Now I’ll Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve, which is a comprehensive view of White’s 30-plus-year career.
