"Really each painting is life itself. The works embrace the dark and light. I find beauty in the fact that we are mostly messy, failing and wailing creatures. Take this away and we may fit too perfectly into the algorithms trying to box us in." - Redin Winter
Contemporary artist Redin Winter is motivated by process, narrative and overall tone in her paintings; a probably influence of twenty three years in theatre. Each painting is built through multiple layers of color, marks, brushwork, and mediums, infused with an ethereal and dream-like style.
Although a private painter for years, Redin began sharing her work publicly in 2017.
Redin's abstract and semi-abstract paintings offer opportunity to pause and reflect in a world that often disregards this need as an important process. Redin's paintings, much like life, is built one layer at a time, one step at a time, with intricate and complex decisions along the way.
Redin Winter has been in juried exhibitions and group shows. Her paintings are in private collections across the United States including California, Washington, Ohio, and Texas. Recently Redin was interviewed by SD Voyager Magazine and appeared on the CW8 with her paintings. Her current studio practice is in San Diego, California.
Redin Winter is influenced by abstract expressionism, impressionism, German Expressionism, and conceptual realism movements. She is influenced by the works of Cecily Brown, Claude Monet, Mary Abbot, Kara Walker, Georgia O'Keefe, and Jack Vettriano. Her absolute favorite painting is Boccioni's "Dynamism of a Soccer Player."
Redin Winter has studied visual art with Kate Ari Ashton, Kristen Ide, Elizabeth Young, and at the Prima Materia Institute.
She holds a Doctorate of Philosophy, Masters of Arts, and Bachelors of Art in Theatre and Drama.
