Appreciating Betty White’s work is both a rewarding journey and an extraordinary destination.

Her masterful pencil discovers faces with minimalist economy while imbuing them with a Renaissance quality. Her materials, the handmade paper, the pigments, the occasional collage elements such as bark, resonate as elements of nature from which true art has always been formed. White’s subjects, faces, trees and branches, spaces filled with glowing light, and more faces, regard us gravely. They seem to know what we often forget, the unity or mysterious conjunction of space and time, and our innate connection to it.

Through her works, we rediscover the continuity of generations linking the distant past with an inevitable future, ancestors and descendants reflected simultaneously. More than this, the human essence we encounter unveils the elemental bond between the earth and sky, between the corporeal and the spiritual. The human is not so frail after all. In the faces we study, absorbing their personalities, we begin to see what makes us each both unique and connected. White’s work unveils the soul.
