Venuz White - The Artist
VOYAGE TO THE CENTER
The biological poetry of Venuz White
The pictorial work of Venuz White has an eloquently contemporary quality in its conceptions and
implications. The artist express herself with painting but her canvases lack references
in the history of styles, and even thought her purposes can be qualified as abstract in
the procedure she uses, her images remind us immediately of an inner world, a biological
one, in which like amplified cellular membranes, meticulously cover the total surface of
It can be said, that her work splits in two complementary directions, one in which her
investigations mainly concern the behavior of color in acrylic painting, in reference to its
essence and chemistry, and the other one in which imagination leads to a poetic approach
of the unseen, as if penetrating natures epidermis, uncovering a microscopic universe,
invisible to the human eye, but at the same time vibrant and vital.
Regarding her chromatic expression, even thought her work begins with a predetermined
palette of colors she allows the relationship of colors to conform a composition, in which
they react according random acts of chance. For instance her experiments of the behavior of color under different chemical reactions ends up in expansions and contractions within the colors, creating intensities and aura type of surrounding when they merge with each other.
As to metaphoric implications of her scientific inspiration, her work invites the viewer to make a voyage to the center, towards his inner self, as if announcing the chance of discovering, in the same way as traveling visually over the surface of her paintings -- an infinity of tiny universes, small cellular forms, all of them part of a harmonic and stimulating whole, however each one with its own particular life.
