A collage of eclectic watercolor shapes and disjointed body parts make up this work, one of Winnie’s artistic celebrations of multicultural motifs. With artful placement and layering, the images and paint unify organically. Her watercolor pigments create vibrant swatches of color condensed into patterns that call on botany and anatomy.
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.
