    “Dina Wind is exhibiting welded sculptures assembled from pieces of scrap metal found in junkyards - industrial springs, sheet metal cutouts, even a propeller. This is vibrant work in which dislocations, ambiguities, and fusions are crucial elements.”

    "While women have been more frequently turning to sculptural means for expression, too rarely has metal been the medium and welding been the technique. In using these means Wind has accomplished something a bit spectacular in her work. For there is, I feel a buoyantly female aesthetic being given form through these means, and that's an exciting development to view."

    "With this show, Wind seems to have reached a certain plateau in the strength of her art. Not only does she retain our interest in the texture and tone of the steel surface, but there is no unresolved antagonism here between surface and structure. Certain sculptures also have a flamboyant burnish, reminiscent of David Smith's work in steel."

    "They (Dina's works) are poetry in motion. Angels appear to float in space and interweave with spheres and twisted rods. There is an expressive thrust and spontaneity in movement, even though Ms. Wind has gone through a deliberate and skillful process to achieve these highly original works. They are rich in texture, versatile in composition, and achieve an asymetrical balance, like a perfectly tuned orchestra."
