About Tony White

tony WHITE: Painter Print-maker
tony WHITE is a painter and print-maker based in Newport, Essex, UK

Statement
My work encompasses my interests and influences in art, and as a biologist and musician. I like to use pure colour, shapes and line in my paintings and prints and also to create space, depth and movement along with a sculptural sense. My work ranges from semi-figurative and abstract forms as well as architectural and landscape elements. I work in a range of paint media from watercolour, acrylic and oil, and in pastel. I use a range of print techniques from linocut, wood-block, screen print and solar plate as well as mixed techniques and collage.

I am currently exploring layered watercolour paintings as well as printing the natural grain from pieces of wood or stone and constructing images with the addition of other printed elements , including 3-D work, often based on the memories or sensations of travel or of music. My work often also comes back to images which feature celestial elements.

I have staged successful solo exhibitions, have had work commissioned for, and featured on, book and magazine covers, corporate brochures, exhibition stands and communication materials. My work has been selected in open competitions, is in private collections in the UK, Europe, U.S.A., Canada, Australia, Brazil and Japan and in the collection of the Paper and Watermark Museum, Fabriano, Italy. I was awarded the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) Presidents Award in the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists (SEAW) selected exhibition in 2012 and was Chairman of SEAW from 2013 to 2016.

I hold a certificate in Advanced Printmaking Techniques from the Curwen Print Study Centre and am a Trustee of the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden, Essex

I am also a published scientist/microbiologist and a jazz/blues guitarist.
