Front Room presents:

Through Wilderness

A series of paintings by Hilary White.

Opening Reception Friday, May 2, 2008
Open May 2 - June 15, 2008

Front Room is proud to present a solo show by Philadelphia artist Hilary White. In her most recent work, White brings her paintings off the canvas and constructs wall pieces that have no boundaries. Accessible from all angles, this work touches on the complexity of "wilderness," described as both "an empty or pathless area or region" or "a bewildering situation." Wilderness is a place for testing physical, mental and spiritual strength. In her work it is depicted cyclically; as an indicator for sustenance.

Accompanying her new series is a selection of paintings from a previous body of work. These large scale paintings show the dualities of life and death in nature and the relationship of this cycle to mankind.

Hilary was born in Texas and grew up in Gainesville Florida. After studying sculpture for a brief time at Colorado University, she earned her BFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in June 2007 and now lives and works in Philadelphia.
