Bio

Summer Wheat (b. 1977, Oklahoma City, USA) lives and works in New York.

Summer Wheat’s paintings and sculptural forms are characterized by expressive structure and color that challenge the limits of material and process. She centers her subject matter upon the figure and narrative, and utilizes an innovative painting technique – pushing acrylic paint through wire mesh – to create rich, fiber-like surfaces.

Summer Wheat received an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and a BA from University of Central Oklahoma. Solo exhibitions include Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City, OK (2016). Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle, WA (2017); Her work has been included in recent museum exhibitions, including ICA Collection: Expanding the Field of Painting (2013–14), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Paint Things: Beyond the Stretcher (2013), deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park; and Paradox Maintenance Technicians: A Comprehensive Manual to Contemporary Painting from Los Angeles and Beyond (2013), Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA. She is the recipient of the Artadia Prize given to one artist at 2016 NADA New York.
