Lot 361 - Kim Dingle - Priss Pissed
Born in 1951 in Pomona, CA, 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. The artist took a hiatus from painting beginning in 2000 to open a vegetarian restaurant in Los Angeles called Fatty’s & Co. Her first solo show in seven years opened at Sperone Westwater on 29 March 2007. This body of work, entitled “Studies for the Last Supper at Fatty’s,” reflects Dingle’s recent experiences running a full-fledged dining establishment and features her frocked naughty girls now suddenly consumed by the urgency, drama and brutal stress of Fine Dining.
