About The Dina Wind Foundation

The Dina Wind Art Foundation was established in 2018 with the mission of preserving and increasing awareness of Dina Wind’s art and supporting the arts (primarily in the Philadelphia region) through a variety of charitable activities. Wind painted in the 1970s and mid-’80s, then switched mediums to metal sculpture, which she studied in studio classes in the late ’70s. Her work included metal sculptures, wall-mounted installations, and room-size environments. Her work has been described as “drawing in space.” 

*If you do not feel that you are eligible for this scholarship, but would benefit from an InLiquid membership and need financial assistance, please contact our office for more information on discounts, payment plans, and how to apply.  We are here for you and your creative endeavors.

I enjoy the manipulation of materials and how process itself contributes to the life and form of the image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time. In my acid etched tin pieces, areas of watery marks are left visible to suggest the underlying layers of the landscape. I  do not strive to recreate the particulars of  places that inspire me, but rather the timelessness of the elements of light, weather, and geometries that inform them. My work is not about how the landscape looks as much as about how the landscape makes me feel. I try to create an image that allows the viewer to engage with it in such a way as to invite similar introspection.
