Beau White - Toe

Beau White’s exhibition Toe explores the relationship between our memories, the physical body and ideas of the self through a series of paintings that reimagine the artistʼs amputated toe in playful and nostalgic visual narratives.

This exhibition will run from January 30th - February 20th and will coincide with QimmyShimmy's show I Scream, You Scream, Jai Raphael's Abyss & David Lee Pereira's Hollow.

Closing reception: Feb 20th, 3 - 6pm

In his early 20s White was diagnosed with cancer and underwent multiple surgeries, including the amputation of his big toe. Using the classical medium of oil painting and the convention of still life, White memorialises his missing toe, giving it an existence and mythology beyond its relegation to medical waste. In his vibrant surreal imagery White uses humour, whimsy and the bittersweet ephemera of childhood to evoke the liminal space between what was lost and what still remains.
