“Asshole” by “The Smartest Artist”

July 24, 2014 | Marina Galperina

Wayne White’s upcoming exhibition “Invisible Ruler” at the Joshua Liner Gallery will feature new work, from his 15-foot kinetic sculptures to works on paper created by the artist during his residency at the Rauschenberg Foundation. The exhibit will also feature White’s signature word paintings, the frankness of which we’re rather partial to. The “NO SHIT” painting seems to speak of the inevitability and obviousness of a crashing ocean. “Asshole” seems to reveal humanity’s hidden faults, below the veneer of beautiful fonts and flowery settings. No shit, asshole. Invisible Ruler,” Wayne White, Sep 11 – Oct 11, Joshua Liner Gallery, Manhattan (Images Courtesy Joshua Liner Gallery)
