Phillip J. Mellen interviews painter Inga Dalrymple about her work and process.
Asked about the relationship between her drawing and painting practices Dalrymple comments: "I don't think of drawing necessarily as something that goes straight into my paintings... they're kind of like a bit of a conversation... I tend to jump between [drawing and painting] a lot and I definitely see the two feeding off each other... I find my drawings a lot fresher and looser and more playful than my paintings but I see my paintings as the older, wiser adults of the two, the drawings on paper and in my sketchbooks are like the wild kids."
Katarina Hybenova talks with Julie Torres about the exhibition ALLTOGETHERNOW at the Coin Locker during Bushwick Open Studios. Torres organized the show which brought painters from around the world together for a collaborative exhibition. The exhibition featured work by Brian Cypher, Brian Edmonds, David T. Miller, Ian White Williams, Inga Dalrymple, Julie Alexander, Justine Frischmann, Peter Shear, Stephen Wright, Vincent Hawkins, and Yifat Gat.
Hybenova writes that Torres "invited a dozen artists she has never met in person, but she has been in vivid contact through social media and art blogs. Many of them came from over seas... [and] participated in a collaborative drawing night with the Bushwick artist held at Hyperallergic HQ. The show titled ALLTOGETHERNOW at a pop up location at Starr and Wycoff, The Coin Locker featured all of these works, and certainly belonged to the most interesting shows during BOS2012. The works in the show were beautiful, colorful abstract paintings that furthermore reflected the energy and friendship, pure joy of being and creating together in Bushwick…"
Interview with painter Inga Dalrymple. Dalrymple discusses her studio practice and influences: "I don’t set out to paint something with an end game in mind. I regularly destroy paintings (by which I mean either scraping back, if I'm using oils, or repainting if I’m using acrylic) not because I don’t always like the results, but because I like how this services the painting. It's also a liberating way to work because then I don’t feel beholden to the original intention."
"I think a lot about graffiti and the way that the layering of spray paint over markers or posters or whatever creates a riot of mess but somehow, if you look closely, there can be a dazzling little discord going on..."
