About Marie Antoinette et Les Femmes Fatales

Dominique explores the essence and flamboyance of “Marie Antoinette et Les Femme Fatales” in a series of tableaux re-envisioning the exploits of the enigmatic Marie Antoinette as an iconic time travelling heroine/villaine, les femmes fatales from films noirs, and sassy French cabaret dancers inspired by her grandfather’s career as a comedian and stage performer in Paris during the early 1900’s.

About The Cathedral Project

In “The Cathedral Project” the artist combines her French heritage with her Midwestern roots. Using rare tin barn roof shingles as her canvas, each piece bridges the spiritual world invoked by gothic architecture by integrating historic facades, icons, and metal to create a dreamy homage to creation both natural and man-made.

About the Artist

Dominique Winders is a multi-disciplinary artist who combines collage, painting, and assemblage to create detailed artwork rich in symbolism and cultural references. Working in acrylic and intricate hand cut collage on wood panel with resin, she creates colorful scenes which incorporate tiny details, humor, and whimsical imagination to re-envision history. Originally from Dubuque, IA, Dominique was raised in an eclectic French-American family and has been a resident of Minneapolis since 2001. In 2014, she became a contributing member of Tres Leches Art Gallery, located in the Northrup King Building in NE Minneapolis. When traveling in France, she spends much of her time seeking obscure architecture and perusing the Marches aux Puces.
