About

The Underdog Gallery is proud to present a new series of paintings called: 'Dicks and Chicks' by Lg White. The opening night will take place on Friday 6th April from 6pm until late. This show is dedicated to Livia, wife of the emperor Augustus and mother of Tiberius and all the other extraordinary women of the Roman Empire who subsequently and, against all odds, exerted a huge influence over their world for over 60 years. Both the ancient Greeks and Romans espoused the ambiguities of sexuality, sexual norms and power in an extraordinary way, remarkably prescient of our own emerging culture. LG's work exhibits a sense of humour that flies in the face of today's out of hand political correctness. History tells us that life is as simple as this: the one who sticks his dick in will be the one who is in power - so it has always been, and so it still is. But, though our world is populated with little Weinsteins and Saviles, let's hope that women can now stick their dick in too! Lg White graduated with her masters in Fine and Commercial Arts in Antwerp where Rubens and many old master painters honed their skills. With the knowledge and techniques given to her by her Dutch heritage and education, she moved around the globe in search of Art: Paris, then New York, Lg White finally moved to London in 2010. Her different bodies of work tap into many different techniques and themes, all related to the Zeitgeist and an eclectic journey of knowledge, life, news, multimedia and pop culture! From Pop Art to Fine Art, she has always been intrigued about how to synthesise her rebellious spirit with the formality of antiquity, reworking the ancient world in a contemporary way. Though she likes to treat serious themes with a light but refined touch, she nevertheless sees the world with a serious and critical eye, trying to make sense of all the madness in her Art. End Date: April 26, 2018. End Time: 3:00 pm. Category: Arts | Visual Arts. Artists / Speakers: Lg White.
