Quotes

"Winder-Boyle has created some beautiful retro pictures, but the most interesting of her mixed media wax paintings are nostalgic with a bite; reassuring images that carry sinister undertones. The effect of mangling Enid Blyton-esque book plates of happy 1930s children with contemporary themes or unpleasant truths is sharply satisfying. Given the medium she uses though it is difficult to judge Winder-Boyle alongside her contemporaries and as a result no one has quite worked out what to make of her. Her materials we, tend to, associate with craft, further confusing us. When does a craftwork become an art work, or is it one already? How do we label her? However, one thing is clear, this artist is getting noticed, she's doing something striking and different and she may just have the intellect to turn this craft of hers into high art. Watch this space."
