Colin Van Winkle

Baltimore-based artist Colin Van Winkle uses 18th and 19th century tools and techniques to create contemporary sculpture that treads the line between the old and the new, the utilitarian and the aesthetic. His practice necessitates a continuous engagement with the inherent nature of his material. In his attention to the pattern of the wood’s growth, Van Winkle envisions what it might willingly become and what tasks it may be too stubborn to support. The finished sculpture is a culmination of moments with a work in progress, the process of its making legible on its surface and in its form.
