In the project Colors towards the end (September fields), she merges photographs of vegetables in the field photographed by night with images from V.W to see if there can be any point of emotional meeting, of how the circle of life and death will be visualized. Winkelmann works with a large amount of pictures over time, sentral part of the process is to see how the images work together, using intuition as an important motivator.

In her recent book V.W 1998-2000 (2021) she is questioning how she could fill the frame by herself, using her own body to stretch the boundaries for what an image can be. Her artistic praxis is based on asking fundamental questions on emotional og personal issues. Parallel to her own artwork she is running the Galleri Hi10 together with 3 other artists in Skien. The gallery is funded by the Norwegian Arts Council.
