Essay by Suzanne Hudson
Terry Winters: patterns in a chromatic field unveils a new body of work. With these seventeen paintings, shown here for the first time, Winters further develops his research into the optical and psychological capacities of oil paint. His layering of color and form echoes the abstracting processes of contemporary science and technology, allowing each canvas to open up new avenues of perception and physical experience.
As Suzanne Hudson explains in the book's essay, Winters's paintings are "wholly intended works, based not upon pre-existing matrices or a-compositional methods but on necessities that accumulate and progress as the painting is brought into being. He has referred to this route as collaborating with circumstance."
Along with Hudson's essay, the book features extensive illustrations, including full-scale details of the canvases, as well as photos of them in progress at Winters' studio.
