The Tournesol Award recognizes one Bay Area-based painter each year with a generous cash prize and a year long studio residency.
Cate White, an artist whose life is intimately connected to the streets of West Oakland, paints portraits of friends, scenes from her experiences in Ferguson and a Louisiana prison, and archetypal characters involved in universal human struggle.
She calls painting “a tool for reconciliation.” Her image-rich, post-comic paintings complicate and critique the social structures that divide us-including race, gender, and class-and poignantly narrate individual and shared vulnerabilities, rendered here as undeniably fraught, humorous, heart-stopping, and unapologetically authentic.
