Artist Statement

As an artist, Winkler focuses on environmental issues connected to history and place. By combining personal experience with historic investigation, he builds landscape narratives that ask viewers to engage the social, political and environmental contexts of their surroundings. Direct experience and research feed the content and deep connections that are important to the artist. “The environmental and cultural tragedies of the past provide an emotive way to engage the high stakes of the present. As we seek new sources of energy and make decisions about land use, it is critical that we have tangible connections to the land and understand what has already been lost.”
