For Nasher Public, painter Paul Winker has made his first sculpture, Untitled (Shroud), using much the same process he follows for his paintings. Winker's paintings start with drawings he makes with his finger on a computer touch pad. These unpremeditated gestures take on an awkward precision in the computer. They are slightly wonky, akin to the simplicity of finger painting, but with a more precise edge as the computer translates the touch of his fingermarks. These computer-mediated finger drawings then become sources for his paintings, which he paints the traditional way with brush on canvas.
The Nasher Public commission gave Winker the opportunity to manifest one of his painted shapes in three dimensions. Rather than painting the form on a squared canvas, he produced the wavy rectangle as a free-standing sculptural form, using much the same materials and techniques as his paintings, but adapting them to outdoor display with the advice of Dallas architect, Gary Cunningham.
