The Top 100 - Timed Auction (78/80)

Notes


Whyte's work considers a dystopian universe where characters interact with one another, exploring the overarching theme of the human condition. His enquiry into the tableau vivant considers the surreal and iconography alike. Characters act as a vessel for metaphorical ideas that he has which he can mobilise within different paintings. ‘If I don’t dance, I smoke part 1' examines quiet moments, unique to the individual but commonly shared by everyone. The painting laments on habit and the need for it in lieu of environments previously unfamiliar.
