“I like what I do. I LOVE what I do. I love my life. I just get up every day and I have a new idea to paint.” – Todd White
For both first-timers and returning tourists at Lake Tahoe, a visit to the popular destination will not be complete without a trip to Marcus Ashley Gallery. It displays an impressive repertoire of Todd White art, oil paintings famous for the artist’s unusual angle on figurative expressionism. They evoke mirth and lively conversation among high-end crowds convening over wine and cheese in posh spaces.
Within these circles, flirting is a sport, and the game is won only by the dauntless. Spirit of the Chase acutely interprets the scenario through White’s unbounded strokes and detailed rendition of facial features and expressions. He expertly draws the female anatomy, albeit dressed in a classy red outfit, elevating it into an art form. Raw, passionate emotions are evident in her suitors’ eager facades. With most women, flattery will get a man somewhere. Is that disdain we see on this heroine’s face, though?
