Ally White grew up in Dallas, GA and received her BFA in painting from the University of Georgia in 2013. Her work has been exhibited in multiple group shows in and around Atlanta, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, ATHICA, Mint Gallery and Hathaway Contemporary. White has held solo exhibitions in San Juan, PR at Trailer Park Projects and most recently in Atlanta, GA at Eyedrum Gallery with her show No Worries. She was featured on the cover of New American Paintings #106, and was selected as a “Jury Picks” for 100 Painters of Tomorrow, a publication produced by Beers Contemporary in London.
White’s paintings depict day-dreaming figures and the lush multicolored world they live in. They are intuitive responses to everyday surroundings that are transformed into unfamiliar and fictional situations. Investigating contrasting themes of happiness, anxiety, loneliness and self-comfort, each painting works to balance and cope through the use of color, humor and play.
