Douglas Whitewas born in UK in 1977 and currently lives and works in London. He has participated in numerous solo and group shows internationally, recently showing in locations as diverse as London,Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Paris, Dubai and Moscow.
For his solo exhibition at Eden Rock Gallery, Douglas White presentsSplendor Solis, a body of work made in, and inspired by the island of St Barth during a month-long residency. The name (translating as “The Splendor of the Sun”) is derived from a celebrated 16thCentury alchemical text which lays out the material and spiritual operations behind the science of alchemy. It is particularly known for its exploration of the point at which nature and mankind meet,and the infinite potential for reconstruction and reformulation held therein — themes which the artist consistently explores.
