Sarah White has been a practicing artist for over a decade, beginning as a photographer of Americana. Since 2010 she has been developing a body of artistic work informed by her experience as The Naked Therapist that focuses on arousal, sexuality, body, display, visibility, transient spaces, the Internet, the cultural quotidian, e-connections, and the forbidden.
Since becoming the Naked Therapist, White has provided Naked Therapy to hundreds of clients and has appeared or been profiled on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Morning Show Australia, CBS News, ABC News, The NY Daily News, NBC New York, FOX Business News, Playboy Radio, The Huffington Post, Salon.com and many other media outlets around the world. She was featured on the “Online Therapy…Naked” panel hosted by PsychCentral.com’s Dr. John Grohol at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival in 2012, she’s been called “Sigmund Freud’s Naked Granddaughter” by Viennese Journal Apdejt.com, and she was voted one of Wired.com’s Top Ten Sexiest Geeks 2010.
Artistic mission: Sarah White seeks to create art that spawns emotions and dialogue that help us more deeply engage with what we truly need and want.
Press: As the following cover stories on ArtInfo.com and Culturebot.net explain, a “fascinating little art world tizzy” occurred when she was censored from the West Chelsea Artists Open Studios in May 2012. The Culturebot critic compared her art and the controversy it aroused to Marina Abramovic, Damien Hirst, Marcel Duchamp, Laurel Nakadate, and Mami Kotak. Further press on this incident can be found at Huffington Post, NY Magazine, and The Faster Times.
