Michael Van Winkle
Place and Replace
December 2 - 30, 2011

Working with the relationship between common objects and the reified art world Michael Van Winkle‘s fast-paced and disorderly daily practice projects a particular place, history, and narrative even in the fluid context of abstract painting. In Place and Replace, hours of intuitive action and discovery result in a densely populated continuum of mismatched pictures and incongruent material surfaces. It is out of this unruly amalgam that Van Winkle pulls the elements which inhabit the final works.

The mysterious dialogue between painted characters opens a kinetic relational space, encouraging invention and creating a trajectory into our imaginations.
