We are pleased to welcome back Jo White with a new series of 100 small-scale paintings, opening in September at Michael Reid Murrurundi.

Last year, White’s epic ‘Hottest 100’ installation at Sydney Contemporary saw all 100 works sell out in just five days.

Brightly coloured, brimming with humour and attuned to the way familiar objects become lodged in the cultural memory, Your Average Dictionary comprises 100 small-scale paintings – each paired with witty titles that play on the irreverence and idiosyncrasies of the Australian vernacular.
White’s new series shares certain sensibilities with the satirical online newspaper The Betoota Advocate, evoking its sardonic spin on sozzled machismo, suburban torpor and everyday peccadillos.

Where Betoota‘s wry reporting on bad behaviour captures contemporary archetypes with biting specificity, Your Average Dictionary affectionately transforms everyday objects into something similarly totemic – richly drawn, warmly nostalgic and with a sting of recognition that lets us laugh at our own foibles.
