In the 25 oils (and 1 watercolor) on exhibit at the Jailhouse Gallery, painter Andy White explores Montana’s landscapes, farm scenes, and the artist’s sense of home.
White lived in six states after leaving Montana years ago. When he moved back home he was inspired by the inviting landscapes, waters, and people of his home region. He found it “nviting to outdoors-lovers–and inviting to artists.” He translates his excitement into his brushwork, evoking a sense of the simple grandeur of home.
In the Bible Jesus says, “It was not you who chose me, but I who choose you.” Artist/illustrator Harvey Dunn said “There is no such thing as a creative artist–they merely express that which has always been.” He also said: “You don’t do things with an idea; they do things with you.”
In this sense, the artist is chosen by the ideas that insist on expression.
