Courman Winters creates works of immediacy and contemporary energy.
His studio practice finds many avenues for community engagement with like-minded artists across races and experiences with the aim of “starting conversations” and “examining the shared human experience.” A quiet and reserved individual, Winters’ visual arts practice has a quiet honesty centered in personal experience. Despite this, Winters has a big influence on the Acadiana community as a community organizer, an experimental artist, and as a founder of the artist collective Willingly Rejected.
In reflecting on this body of work Winters states, “My current work expresses the power of reflection on my psyche as well as an overall appreciation. My art is focused on transparency with yourself and others for personal growth and to build open lines of communication to understanding.”
Winters employs a variety of mark-making and media in this collection of works. Digital works are set next to hand-drawn ink and graphite; these are then juxtaposed with works in reflective gold paint. There are many happy glimpses and moments for the keen observer in Winters’ work.
We hope you sit with these works in person, take a moment to be attentive, and give yourself space to peer into Winters’ artwork as a window into quiet moments we need for self-reflection at a time of great social change.
