Piece description from the artist
My friend T, the free spirited mover who is impossible to pin down… she never looks back, never turns around.
The canvas is made up of cotton and velvet, some of the materials from our performances together. I stitched them together and painted on top.
Winston Chmielinski (b. 1988 in Boston, MA) engages with painting through organic dissolutions and reconstitutions of the figure. Forms forego their contours, suspending Chmielinski's paintings out of narration and into insistence—of paint, of presence, and of perception.
Following a decade of critically acclaimed solo presentations in EU and US, inclusion in the 2013+2017 Venice Biennales, and spotlights at VOLTA NY, The Armory Show NY, Liste, and Positions Berlin, Winston now helms a creative studio in Berlin and is preparing a new body of work, to be released in 2023.
