New Blood Art Statement

With a First Class Degree in Illustration, Whiteman is the author of several storybooks. His interest in narrative takes a lyrical turn in his Fine Art, with paintings that hint at stories while resisting their linear form, creating images that are enigmatic and reticent. The paintings recreate the absorbed attention of childhood, managing to inhabit that gaze in an authentic way, with the insinuating threats on the borders of that experience not excluded either. Whiteman explores themes of powerlessness -in both the works that privilege the child’s perspective, and in the strange scenes of half animal and half human figures reminiscent of Pym, crawling through the mud, in Beckett’s How It Is.

Artist Statement

I create other-worldly oil paintings that reflect my interest in story-telling, but in a narrative form where the meaning is not fully explained – the power lies in its enigma. The depictions deal with themes of powerlessness - the feeling of being at the mercy of forces far larger than any individual. It is a subject that illuminates my view of a world in which we are hyper-aware of its scale and complexity, through the enormous amount of media which we subject ourselves to. I express this sense of insignificance and unease through half animal figures, often hooded and bound.
