Terry Winters

Terry Winters, is a contemporary American painter and printmaker. With a wide-ranging and eclectic practice, Winters conflates non-narrative organic abstraction and mathematic systems into complex compositions that reference digital space, architecture, life, and identity. His biomorphic, geometric paintings explore the limits of Minimalist and Modernist traditions through texturally raw surfaces. ?There?s not a one-to-one relationship between the image and what it stands for in the world,? the artist has said of abstract art. ?There are shifting meanings which have the characteristics of metaphor.? Born in Brooklyn, NY in 1949, completed his BFA at Pratt Institute in 1971, and quietly rose to prominence in the New York scene throughout the 1980s, alongside painters such as Stephen Mueller and Bill Jensen. A survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1992 brought Winters? introspective work to the forefront of the art world, propelling him into the canon of contemporary abstraction. Since then, he has enjoyed significant critical attention, exhibiting his works in retrospectives at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, as well as by galleries such as Matthew Marks in New York.http://www.artnet.com/artists/terry-winters/
