Winnie Sidharta
Works in Queens, NY
In the age of migration and multicultural families, no one has to be one thing - Winnie straddles three countries of Indonesia, China, and the U.S where she worked as educator as well as artist. In her mixed-media works, tropical and botanical motifs are not relegated as an exotic backdrop but intermingle with human bodies. Some motifs are more pronounced, like figures sitting in the position of or making hand gestures of Buddha. But Winnie's playful collage uses these pieces to resist the sense of a fixed origin, fully giving in celebrating rather than resisting the confusions of having multitudinous identities.
You'll love Winnie if: you are easily seduced by the sea of beads, sequins, and tassels at traditional markets.
"My work can be described as figurative landscape, a metaphor to think about various forms of migration and the complexity of memory, representation of the(female) body, and a shifting sense of place."
