||Tara White (b. 1980) often uses humor as a catalyst to explore a wide range of issues including gender, sexuality, aggression, fantasy, and class.
White, who was born in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, also frequently addresses the social issues associated with her rural roots and current urban existence in greater New York City.
White works in photography, video, animation, new media, and performance. She writes that the subjects of her work are as diverse as the media she uses and include "various queers, the elderly, the homeless, angry teenage boys, men, housewives, and those disenfranchised or otherwise overlooked by society."
White describes herself as a conceptual artist "in a constant state of yearning," always on the lookout for "the visceral, the wild, the untamed and the sincere" in an era she describes as domesticated and globalized, "where nothing is shocking."
