Terry Winters  (American, 1949) 

whitespace
Terry Winters (American, b.1949) is a painter and engraver whose paintings resonate well with the Modernist legacy. Winters was born in Brooklyn, NY, and he graduated with a BFA from the Pratt Institute in 1971. After graduation, Winters painted for 10 straight years without exhibiting his work even a single time, making his first solo exhibition debut at the Sonnabend Gallery, New York, in 1982. In the 1970s, Winters and his peers such as Carroll Dunham (American, b.1949) and Stephen Mueller (American, b.1947) were interested in variegated mark making without sacrificing the physicality and non-narrative abstractness that were integral to Modernism. Most of Winters''s work is inspired by architecture, technology, and the natural sciences in general. In the 1990s, Winters started to use a lot of grids and colored shapes in his paintings. Winters is also a highly skilled printmaker and draftsman, and he often exhibits works from this genre aside from his painting exhibitions. Examples of his works include THEOPRASTUS'' GARDEN (1982), Process Color (2007), and Wood/Cut/Figures (2011).

In 1982, Bill Goldston invited Winters to print at the studio of the Universal Limited Art Editions. Winters has also published a number of books including Ocular Proofs (1995), Graphic Primitives (1999), and Filters in Stock (2009). Winters has held a number of solo exhibitions in diverse places, including at the Sonnabend Gallery, New York, NY, (1982), Kunstmuseum, Lucerne, Switzerland (1985), University Art Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, (1988), and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland (2009).

In addition to these solo exhibitions, Winters has also participated in a number of group exhibitions including Drawing in Black and White, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, (1994), Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, Vienna, Austria, (1997), and Drawings, Russell Bowman Fine Art, Chicago, IL, (2012). Winters is represented by the Matthew Marks Gallery in New York. Winters now lives and works in New York and Geneva, Switzerland.
