Exhibition Label:
"Big Botany: Conversations with the Plant World", 27-Mar-2018
Sandy Winters’s work explores the evolution of visual ideas,
and often begins with collages of collected paper scraps found
on the floor of her studio, which ultimately culminate into states
of temporary resolution. For Winters, Long Night’s Journey Into
Day is a dialogue depicting the clash between nature and culture.
It began with a preexisting drawing of an industrial form taking on anthropomorphic characteristics, ultimately consumed by trees
and vines.
