Joan Waltemath: Contingencies

Michelle Heinz reviews Joan Waltemath: Contingencies at Peregrine Program in Chicago which was on view from April 16 - May 15, 2011. Heinz writes: "While artistic experimentation has been a kind of tour-de-force, somewhere outside of painting, Waltemath has aggressively insisted that paint is still a frontier."  In works from 2003-present Waltemath employs a wide variety of materials as a "vehicle to overcome the flatness and dominance of the traditional grid."
