> DESCRIPTION

Michael White’s New Myths, Modern Man will feature a number of printed banners. By juxtaposing images referencing designed obsolescence, nostalgia, industrially manufactured individualism and mythology against a back drop of patterns constructed from graffiti samples echoing tribal iconography and middle-eastern rug design, White’s new work sarcastically confronts (with self-critical futility) the often overlooked reality that notions of taste and social identity are the product of embedded ideology.

Michael White is based in Kilbirnie and is a member of artist collective Willie McNulty. Recent exhibitions include; Celluloid Brushes: An Anthology of the Filmic Perception of the Artist from 1267 till today, Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam & Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Berlin (2012); Arrives In Starting, The Duchy Gallery (offsite), Glasgow (2012); Beholder, Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh (2011); The Last Man, Embassy Gallery (offsite), Edinburgh (2011) and Insert Tiara with Lila de Magalhaes, SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow (2010).
