Claiming to be the artist’s last public exhibition, “A Surrealist’s Retrospective” will take a look back at the work of J. Phillip White. His distinctive style is influenced by the Surrealists, whom he became drawn to during his graduate studies in art history, as well as his unique Tennessee upbringing during the Cold War and experience fighting in Vietnam. His collages are comprised of photographs cut from hundreds of magazines and meticulously assembled into new images that intend to evoke emotional responses and contemplations on the human condition. White’s show will also include a display of custom birdhouses.
