Representing galleries

Using a palette described by one critic as “evocative of both the sepia tones of daguerreotype photographs and the dark paintings of Zurbarán and Goya,” Kim Dingle imbues these scenes of frolic and frenzy with an ethereal glow. Dingle’s usual protagonists—the fat white frocked everygirls—previously gripped by a mindless and inexplicable violence against nature and each other, are now suddenly consumed by the urgency, drama and brutal stress of Fine Dining.

Born in 1951 in Pomona, CA, Dingle lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited extensively and she has had several solo exhibitions including shows at the Otis Gallery, Otis College of Art, Los Angeles (1995-1996), The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago (1996) and the Bell Gallery at Brown University (2000). Dingle was included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial and her work appeared in a major group exhibition entitled "Sunshine and Noir: Art in L. A., 1960–1997," which traveled to several major institutions in Europe.
