THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS
Reception and Screening
March 5, 2009 6PM
Moving Image Lab| CCA
Edwina White's delicate drawings on found vintage papers of menus and books, etc. are often enhanced with collage and text and present multiple narratives. Her whimsical escapades are built from memory and injected with gentle, often wry humor. Her subjects are distinctive in character, melding classical elements of expression and detail with a raw modern sensibility.
Born in Sydney, Australia, Edwina White graduated in Visual Communications, following a spell at Brighton University, England. Her drawings, installations and animations have been exhibited in the United States, Australia and the UK.
The Center for Contemporary Arts [CCA] will hold a small reception / screening to showcase Edwina White's latest work at 6pm Thursday, March 5. White will present the work created during her residency—a stop motion animated short, "The Way the Wind Blows". The handpainted and charmingly absurd characters that feature in the film will also be on view in the studio.
