These works, made especially for OVERRIDE, integrate brushwork from White's atmospheric airbrush paintings with quintessential images of optimism. Presented emoji-style in clean black and white against highly textured grounds, the symbols also represent weather and health conditions—a rain cloud, a pixelated heart, a rainbow. The title, Pleasure, suggests a dark or perhaps more ironic read, questioning the nature of symbols as both signs and brands.
A cutting edge citywide public art initiative, presented by EXPO CHICAGO and the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. Displayed throughout Chicago’s City Digital Network.
