From rationality to absurdity; the particular to the unspecific; self-defining mundaneness, these are some of the immaterial aspects that inform Whiteside’s text based work.
Through obfuscation he consciously operates where contrarious notions occur. When he states that ‘Nothing is nothing’, he may mean it’s something.
His art is all about the journey, the process and, like Samuel Beckett (possibly his biggest influence), he believes pasionately that “Art has nothing to do with clarity,does not dabble in the clear and does not make clear”.
