Pae White

Artist Profiles > W > Pae White

Pae White is an American artist based in Los Angeles, California. Working across media, she pursues an expansive practice that embraces sculpture, installation and painting as well as architecture, furniture and graphics. Pae White’s large-scale architectural installations are often carefully integrated into their site. Her practice is characterised by an unconventional use of materials such as glass, fabric, paper, wire and vinyl and her desire to create work beyond her personal skill set by inviting artisans and industrial fabricators to help realise her ideas. Exploiting the perceived gaps between art, craft and design, Pae White has created an extraordinarily diverse body of work.
