Kim Dingle at The Renaissance Society, 1996
An excerpt from Kim Dingle’s exhibition at The Renaissance Society, 1996:
As her main medium, Los Angeles-based bad girl Kim Dingle has chosen American history. Sometimes irreverent, sometimes bizarre, but never without humor, Dingle’s paintings, sculptures and installations feature political and Hollywood figures — John Wayne, Abraham Lincoln, Jimmy Carter and Ed Sullivan — synonymous with America. Whether its Cowboys and Indians or The Union versus the Confederacy, this country was forged in fits of violence. Dingle’s most recent work revisits the American West, populating it with a group of rambunctious Victorian girls charged with frontier violence.
