Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects presents Kim Dingle’s “Yipes” at their home venue.
Kim Dingle’s “Yipes” is the gallery’s first exhibition of new work by Los Angeles artist Kim Dingle. Three new bodies of work made in 2016 – 2017: Freight Train Crushes, Home Depot Coloring Books, and Blindfold Paintings. The first part pairs huge colorful paintings on glassine, crushed into outsized wads like so much old newspaper, with down-scaled paintings on mounted C-prints. Their compositions suggest storyboards and graphic novels. The second part includes a series of new “nature” paintings on OSB (oriented structure board) that Dingle insists anyone could make. Blindfold Paintings comprises of artworks in children in frilly socks, Peter pan collars, and wire-rimmed glasses seem a bit off, with body parts ever so slightly misplaced. The artist made these works while blindfolded.
