Winnie Sidharta’s characteristic paint and collage takes on a more softly edged aesthetic in this work. Straying from smooth color washes, her marks are distinctly more textured and weathered looking, almost resembling pastel or oil stick. Shapes that reference botany and anatomy make up this work, an artistic celebration of multicultural motifs.
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.
