Still life painter Diane White is inspired by magical realism, a literary genre founded by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and other notable writers. The movement perches on the intersection between the visible world and a secret universe we must discover. White’s objects might appear to exist in a natural setting, but hidden within her serene works are extraordinary happenings and narratives. In “Magical Realism”, showing at the Matthews Gallery from August 16 through 29, she tells the tales of these beloved objects in fantastical ways.
