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.
Feminist Artist Statement
that everything is political, that everything is politicized. But…I don’t work at that level. The fact that we walk around…and eat and breathe and have ideas and don’t need any batteries or
“Priss” is like Shirley Temple as a psycho pit bull.
