[Wendy] White digitally manipulated
original photographs of metropolitan sites and then had them printed onto vinyl.
She juxtaposed these with painted canvases to arrive at large-scale, multipaneled
works in which structural components overlap one another or rest on the gallery
floor. Stacked and abutted, these parts also act in concert with one another,
even—or especially—when they reproduce the jarring mishmash of their referents.
'Fotobilds' (the German title suggesting, to an English speaker, construction as well
as picturing) comes closer than any single-medium work could to a physical,
visual, and associative palimpsest of the city itself. —Michael Wilson
