Take Only What You Need From Me
Take Only What You Need From Me (Limited Edition) Todd White Art From Globally Acclaimed Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“The primal need to be loved comes from deep inside but can take us to a dark place. To mistake attention and lust for kindness and love… delusional? Yes, but ignorance is bliss. Who am I to say what’s your pleasure?” – Todd White
Todd White art collectors and fans converge at the Marcus Ashley Gallery for a very good reason: it exhibits a large collection of the artist’s body of work. The distinctive bold colors in White’s paintings breathe life to an otherwise static human figure. Hanging his figurative expressionist pieces on plain and monochromatic walls immediately makes a space interesting. Pondering on them with like-minded friends stimulates the bored mind and weary body.
Take Only What You Need From Me, in the artist’s words, is a painting of caution and submission, of wanting love and giving yourself away but perhaps not understanding the consequences of that action. He imparts this message through his trademark blonde girl with sultry eyes that say come hither. The palette is simple yet powerful, rendered with a fluidity that could come only from the Todd White brush.
