My Brand New Pistol (Limited Edition) Todd White Art From Globally Acclaimed Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I study body language, using its nuances to capture the subtleties of what people show and hide.” – Todd White
Hotels, bars, and resorts would do well with their guests by hanging Todd White art pieces on their walls. These figurative expressionist paintings of people’s exaggerated features and textured complexions are excellent conversation starters. They invoke laughter and inspire fresh viewpoints on the myriad innermost feelings humans attempt to disguise. An impressive collection of the artist’s body of work can be found at the Marcus Ashley Gallery.
My Brand New Pistol showcases White’s indubitably personal take on his signature trope, the human body as an art form, and the feelings it conveys through subtle degrees of movement. The bespectacled subject in this piece is as ordinary as her electric blue top, mustard couch, wallpaper filled with brown flowers that match her hair, and striped rug in earth tones. And yet, the artist finds the suggestive eyes behind her specs extraordinary. Both hands are splayed in a confident outward stance indicating she is not one to be messed with. White elevates everything common in this scene into a dramatic sequence with his smooth and detailed brushwork.
But where is the pistol?
