UGG! and other problems

On view at The Middler from October 18 – December 23, 2018, UGG! and other problems brought together four paintings dating back to 2003. Loosely concerning alcohol, women, and the everyday violence of American whiteness, this exhibition was conceived before Brett Kavanaugh’s problems began. But because Kavanaugh’s problems have always been the problems of women, and because painting has always been the domain of men, a connection cannot help but be made.

Yes, we painted. My friends and I, the boys and girls. Yes, we painted. I liked painting. Still like painting. We painted. The painting age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school, people were legal to paint, and we — yeah, we painted, and I said sometimes — sometimes we probably painted too much, and sometimes other people painted too much. I liked painting. I still like painting.
