FRANK  SHERWOOD  WHITE

My work is play.  I play with words and concepts in order to reach past my automatic assumptions.  Play is the doorway to the alternatives that lie dormant inside my mindless encounters. I want to experience what is actually in front of me without being limited by the biases of my preconceived notions.

 

I love irony and am inspired when a slightly humorous incongruity exists between what I would automatically assume about a subject and what actually exists in reality.  Humor almost always provides the spark.  The concepts that get developed come from situations where the humor and incongruity strike me in a way that is unforgettable, although often, the resulting work ends up being expressed as a serious subject.
