Terry Winters

Terry Winters participated in "Artists' Sketchbooks," Matthew Marks Gallery's inaugural show, in 1991, and since then the gallery has presented nine one-person exhibitions of Winters's drawings, paintings, and prints. Over the course of his career Winters has expanded the concerns of abstract art, beginning with botanically inspired images (cells, spores, seeds) and going on to explore biological processes, scientific and mathematical fields, and issues raised by the interaction of information technologies and the human mind, while maintaining a strong modernist sensibility that reveals itself in the symbolic languages of figures and lines he develops in his work.

Winters (born 1949) received a BFA from Pratt University, New York, in 1971. He has had solo exhibitions at Tate Gallery, London (1986); the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1992); Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (1999); the Kunsthalle Basel (2000); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2001); and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2009); and Staatliche Graphische Sammlung at the Pinakothek der Moderne (2014). Winters lives and works in New York City and Columbia County, New York.
