Drive-by Projects is very pleased to present our summer exhibition, Picnic: New Gingham Paintings by Michelle Grabner. This selection of oil on burlap paintings continues Grabner's abstract portrayals of familiar domestic textiles.

Once again Michelle Grabner mines her archive of blankets, linens and household stuffs to create homey geometries that speak to anyone who has ever owned a crocheted afghan or checkered tablecloth. With a meticulous reverence that affirms the importance of the domestic life, Grabner makes paintings that are object-like in their physicality. A departure from her earlier Flashe pieces, these gingham paintings are done in oil and gesso on burlap to create textured panels that border on bas relief. Layered, lumpy and homespun, perhaps the works are a metaphor for the ups and downs of daily life on the domestic front.
