A new exhibit by R. Sawan White called “the common quiet” opens November 16 at Eric Schindler Gallery.
Of his own work, the Rhode Island based artist says, “I spend a lot of my time thinking about the unseen. It is a place I like to dwell. My paintings and prints explore this. They are about many things, places, people (nouns, I suppose). They are my processing of life. Many people keep a diary or journal; I have never been good at that. But the paintings—they are a record of my living. I record in color and line, texture and form. I believe we as people are many things. That we are formed and known and in turn desire to do the same. We were made to seek beauty, justice, truth, things unseen, and to make them visible through our lives.”
Opening reception is from 7-9pm November 16. Show runs through December 22. Eric Schindler Gallery,
