LACMA's Artists on Art video series
For Artists on Art, Pae White speaks on Soup Tureen and Ladle by Christopher Dresser.
LACMA's Artists on Art videos offer insights into works in the museum's encyclopedic collection that have inspired and informed artists working today. Looking at art through their eyes, we hear directly from artists about works that intrigue them and have fed their own creativity.
Pae White's practice straddles the line between what is thought of as "high art" and "functional object." I; in fact, her creations often—and purposefully—are both, finding their place simultaneously in the worlds of art, craft, and design. Her work ranges from intimate installations incorporating Vera scarves to large-scale tapestries, based on photos of crumpled aluminum foil or plumes of smoke and made on computer-driven looms. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
