The Energy Fields of John Howell White

John Howell White has said of his work, “Hopefully, these images animate space, attract viewers attention,” and I am telling you, they certainly do. Howell White’s vibrant oil paintings in his solo exhibition Ghost Stories illuminate the Archer Gallery where they hang. Their color fills the space, glowing in the light, phantomlike. His work is titled with buzzing, vibrating words like “Orange Nerves,” “Grey Circuit,” and “White Filament,” all of which are fitting for his colorfully vivid tableaus.

Orange Nerves, 2017

All eleven artworks in the Ghost Stories cannot help but attract your attention. John Howell White, of course, knows very well how to do this. He is a Professor of Art Education in the Department of Art Education and Crafts at Kutztown University in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. He has an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute and a Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University. He is also the author of Experience Painting, a textbook for secondary art students. Easy to say, Howell White knows exactly what he is doing when he aims to animate his space with his paintings.

Torquantus, 2018


Each painting is heavily layered and complex in it’s color, forms, and saturation. They draw viewers in with their nuances and energy. It is absolutely worth seeing these pieces in person, as they are vastly different as they tower in front of you. But if you cannot make it to see Ghost Stories while its up from March 21st to May 30th, you can always visit the collection on the InLiquid Artsy page below!
