Brooklyn Solo Exhibition April 13-26th, 2012

I have a solo exhibition April 13-26th, 2012 at the Soapbox Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. I am very excited about this project.

As an artist and arts advocate my wife and I help produce and curate art exhibitions, provide opportunities and encourage artists through b.a.l.m. | beauty, art and life movement. I was offered a personal solo art show at an alternative gallery space in Brooklyn, NY from April 13-26, 2012. The space is all that is provided, and the artist acts as the janitor, gallerist, host and receptionist. To be able to produce the large conceptual based installation and object artwork that I make, as well as be in New York for 2-3 weeks during the exhibition, I am looking to raise funds to help make this project a reality. If more funds are raised than required for the project, any extra will go to producing and printing catalogs of the exhibit. I am hoping to pre-sell work for the exhibition. Below are some conceptual images and renderings that show what I am producing. If you are interested, or know of someone who would be interested in this work, please contact me to discuss. Please help me get out the word about this project! Thank you!

Bear Heart

A naturally peaceful bear protrudes from the wall with arms extended in a kind gesture, paws touching.
The negative shape of the arms creates a simple but powerful message, and encourages the viewer to wrestle with larger issues of life.

Darin M. White, Overflow, Reclaimed wood, seeds, 2012

Overflow conjures thoughts of farmland, barns and brimming silos. Seeds are important and are traded as a
commodity. Cycles of life happen whether we understand the process or choose to bury our head. Our land,
resources and life are laid out in front of us, one moment at a time. What will we do with what we are given?

A men’s suit made from the same material to hold potatoes or coffee is buried to its knees in soil. Out of the
earth emerges a single seedling. Appropriate Attire: Burlap and Earth wrestles with issues of power and
humility, struggle, toil, life cycle, memento mori, forward movement and growth.

Appropriate Attire:Burlap and Ashes

A burlap sack becomes a women’s dress that either is rising out of or sinking into ashes which create the
outline. From the ashes, new growth begins to form. In nature when fire burns the forest decimating it,
eventually out of this process emerges life and the chance to begin again.
