Winnie van der Rijn is a multi-disciplinary artist of opportunity– collecting materials, experimenting with techniques, and pursuing her curiosities. Her art practice includes textiles, sculpture, collage and collaboration (which she considers its own art form). She plays well with others. van der Rijn actively exhibits her work throughout the United States. A life-long learner, she graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1989 with a BA in Sociology. She has studied printmaking, sculpture, metalsmithing, and Marxist theory. In addition, she has explored weaving, machine knitting, bookmaking, altars, exploding picture boxes, automata, shoe making, millinery, sewing, fusing, stamping, metal weaving, resin, riveting, precious metal clay, and mixed media. She is wildly curious about how things are made. Themes of memory, identity, gender, beauty and power reflect her everyday experiences, interactions and concerns. Her current body of work is an examination and deconstruction of patriarchal power in menswear. A seventh generation Californian, she is currently based in New York City. She and her husband are redefining what it means to be an empty nester.
