I just received these images from Michael Van Winkle, a painter who lives in Easthampton, Massachusetts. He says he explores the relationship between common household objects and the rarefied art world in a fast paced and disorderly daily practice wherein particular places, histories and narratives unfold within the fluid context of abstract painting. His work looks terrific, and it’s included in a four-person exhibition at Vox Populi in Philadelphia through December 30. I’ll try to stop by on my way to New York this week.
“Place and Replace: Michael Van Winkle, Todd Baldwin, Dan Levenson, Michael May,” Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, PA. Through December 30, 2011.
