IMAGES: Michael Van Winkle

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.
