Feedback and further things for me to think about here are that it does not criticize whiteness so much as point to it. I think this is fine since the white artists I know also do not think too much about their own whiteness. I also see this as part of my own development. Recognizing that whiteness is a construction and then moving on to criticism. On the other hand, it is a valid consideration since I do not have access to many white artists who are currently active and working within the “art world.” What do they think or know about whiteness? Formally, there might be more contrast between the raw wood and the white interior/exterior as it is currently painted in a manner that mimics whitewash, which is also naturalistic in feeling. I will consider painting another several coats on the interior.
