Dina Wind STAINLESS

Dina Wind STAINLESS

The Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College,

Collegeville, PA

January 28-May 12, 2018

Dina Wind’s dramatic sculptural assemblages make use of ordinary, yet unexpected materials that coalesce into abstract compositions of color, form and texture. Using only stainless steel in this series, the works seem to come together intuitively, welded together from disparate forms. But the found objects that make up Wind’s work do not lose their connection to their original meaning and individual identities. They retain significant links to their histories as tools of action and motion. The implied animation of such objects gives Wind’s sculptures a sense of pent-up energy and wry humor, recalling the long tradition of still-life painting alongside expressionistic abstraction.  –From the exhibition invitation
