Blaine White

I have for many years been interested in and have studied the painting techniques of the old masters. I use this style as a starting point to explore compositions that are not straight imitations of older styles but incorporate contemporary elements. I have used images of baroque statues and architecture and incorporated them into a modern setting. I chose to do realism over abstract art because I felt it could specifically communicate ideas more clearly. I have also touched on historical figures; some of the prime ministers of Canada, politicians, and other personalities.
