Joan Winter

Joan Winter is a Dallas TX-based artist whose prints and sculpture are influenced by contemporary Japanese architecture, especially spaces emphasizing light and transparency as primary elements. Areas of investigation include ideas of light as the inner source of form and concepts of time relative to memory, physical changes and movement in space. Her subtle reductive use of materials includes light natural woods, translucent cast resin, and handmade paper, revealing forms of physical lightness and ethereal presence. For the “Counterpoint” photogravures, Winter photographed several small sculpture maquettes made from carved acrylic, cropping the images to create new abstract forms.
