Dina Wind, Spring & Triangle

carbon steel

Museum commission, 2016
360 x 272 x 155 in.

Dina Wind originally created Spring & Triangle to be 37” high. Her dream was to have her sculptures at a scale large enough to interact with the natural environment. The present sculpture was created at K.C. Fabrications and brought to Woodmere in 2016. It stands at 30’ tall, almost ten times its original size.

Wind considered herself an abstract expressionist. She started as a painter and switched in the early 70’s to metal sculpture and considered her sculptures “drawings in space.” Instead of paint and a brush, she would comb scrap metal and car part yards to find fenders, tires, exhaust pipes, mufflers, discarded tools, gears, and assorted items for her sculptures. These would be sawed and welded together into clusters and assemblages that create new spaces and ways of looking at the surrounding environment.
