Kim Dingle

Never in School (flip over)
by Kim Dingle

"...Kim Dingle has been exploring the subversive edges of female childhood and myths of nationhood and history in lush paintings and startling sculptures for over two decades. Her characters "Fatty" and "Fudge"-- known as "Priss Girls" when in sculptural form--act out, misbehave, and are gripped by a mindless and inexplicable violence against nature and each other. Dingle, who often paints in a palette of blurry beiges, sepias, and browns on vellum, creates ethereal scenes of frolic and frenzy that reference historical events and cultural norms..."
