Born in Israel, Dina Wind came to the United States in 1963. Wind received her MA from the University of Pennsylvania and completed the Barnes Foundation Program. She has exhibited throughout the United States in solo and group shows, concentrating on New York and Philadelphia. Wind has also received several sculptural awards and her work is represented in corporate and private collections.
Artistically descended from Abstract Expressionism, Wind started her art training in studio painting classes with Sam Feinstein, an artist/teacher who studied with Hans Hoffman. Wind painted from the early 70’s to the mid 80’s, when she switched mediums to metal sculpture, which she studied in studio classes since the early 80’s. Her current 3D work includes individual metal sculptures, metal sculpture wall series, and floor installations, all of which have been described as “drawing in space”. Instead of brush and canvas, Wind works with cast-off materials such as abandoned car parts, industrial cut outs, pewter kitchenware and discarded tools. She transforms this detritus, the bane of the urban landscape, into lyrical compositions accented by deep glowing colors and 3-dimensional lines. In 2006, Wind started to make 3-Dimensional works on paper.
