SF Chronicle: Review of Care of Trees
“a tale of love taking root, realism…that works to the most magical effect…with the story of their romance in flashbacks, mystically framed in video loops by Ian Wintes”
SF Chronicle: Review of Fable and Faith
“…One of the seasons great charmers…Moses’ collaborators lent sterling support…luminous projections deliver us to a never-never land”
SF Chronicle: pick of the week for film: MilkBar Film festival 9/11/08
“…started three years ago as a way to show performance installations[by the curators] that include films (more than 20 this year) from places as far away as St. Petersburg, Russia.…The festival has proved so popular that this year’s edition calls for a bigger venue…There might be bigger film festivals, but few can match the MilkBar’s sense of discovery.”
LA Times: March 24th, 2008
“…in the witty “traffic (or thoughts while eating Ritz crackers).” Sitting in front of a video by Ian Winters of relentless highway traffic, Armentrout wound herself around her chair and into a knot of worry as she ate the titular snack and mused aloud about her day…which, like the onslaught of imagery and crackers, quickly overwhelmed her.”
Wall St. Journal, April 3rd, 2009
about Rendition created with harpsichordist Jane Chapman
“a wonderful short film by Ian Winters…music by Evelyn Ficarra”
St. Petersburg Times, Ru. Aug. 22nd 2008
“The Moving Baltic Sea festival … is a traveling circus of film, music and art … Other events to be presented at the festival are performances [correct translation – installations] on the topic of water by U.S.-based artist Ian Winters.”
