Michael Wingo

Leah Ollman reviews the exhibition Michael Wingo: Squeeze Series on view through June 4, 2011 at Gallery K|M in Santa Monica. In the paintings Wingo employs a radically stretched picture plane in works that are 1 foot high and 9 feet across.

Ollman writes: "Arranging flat colored planes across the canvas almost like a cut-paper collage, Wingo overlaps forms but doesn’t blend them. Tensions feel contained, compositional dynamism kept simmering on low heat."
