"Wind's sculpture is powerful yet humble, tough yet tender, lyrical yet blunt. Her assemblages show us the importance of art for making sense out of the confusion of life and its artifacts in the late twentieth century. Her work shows us how the ordinary can be sublime. It tells us that a thing does not have to be perfect to be used perfectly. Instead of seeing life as a progression towards decay, she reverses the aging process and finds new life for old and tired discards. Her welded metal poems in space make order out of chaos and demonstrate that the power of visual communication can be greater than words."
