About Winnie

Winnie Sidharta is a painter who currently lives and works in Queens, New York. The primary modality through which she think and work is collage. The cut - the edit, the single chance, the removal and reassembling of time, of form, and of space has been the grounding component of her practice. She re-imagine and recompose variations of figures and landscapes through the fundamental process of cutting and editing existing paintings and printed glossies. Her works are driven by a desire to witness a true image,  one that transcends symbols and codification; one that both exists within and negates form itself. This has been the guiding thread throughout her investigations of image, selfhood, and the historic precedent of landscape and portraiture as a means of coalescing the disparate dimensions of our fragmented human identities.
